Update July 13, 2020: Indoor malls must close all indoor operations due to a new directive from the California Governor. This comes after an uptick in cases, increased hospitalizations and outbreaks throughout the state of California and in Marin County. The reason for the closure is "common areas" of indoor malls, such as indoor seating areas or food courts, encourage groups to congregate. There is no current target for reopening indoor areas of Malls. However, if a business at a mall has a second customer entrance that can been accessed from the outside of the mall, it may continue to operate.
As of June 12, with permission from the local jurisdictions and/or shopping center, retailers can offer curbside, outdoor and indoor retail options following the public health guidelines posted below.
As of July 21, customers may use their own reusable bags at retail establishments, but they must adhere to the following requirements: customers must leave reusable bags in a shopping cart/basket or carry them and bag their own items after checkout. Customers are not permitted to bring their own mugs or other reusable items from home.

Each retailer must create, adopt, and implement a written COVID-19 Site-Specific Protection Plan that incorporates and addresses all applicable Best Practices included in this guidance.
