Facial Coverings

Facial coverings are required in most settings outside the home, especially where social distancing practices may be difficult to maintain. Unless unsafe, facial coverings are required for everyone aged 2+ when:

  • at indoor AND outdoor businesses - whether as an employee or customer
  • waiting in line to enter a store
  • waiting for and using public transit
  • when in a taxi or rideshare
  • when seeking healthcare; or visiting a hospital, medical clinic, laboratory, dental office, veterinary clinic, or blood bank
  • walking outside and within 6 feet of others

You do not need to wear a face covering while you are exercising outdoors by yourself, but you must keep one with you and ensure your nose and mouth are securely covered when you pass someone within six feet.

In August, the State of California introduced the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a four-tier framework by which California counties are measured for loosening and tightening of restrictions on social activities and business operations. On November 16, 2020, Marin County moved to Tier 2 (Red), the 2nd most restrictive status. 

However, the restrictions imposed by the Blueprint are now superseded by the State's and County's latest Stay-at-Home Order, implemented in response to alarming COVID-19 surges. The current Order prohibits gatherings of any size, closes operations except for critical infrastructure and retail, and requires 100% compliance with facial covering and physical distancing protocols. These new restrictions are in place until further notice. 

The graphic below outlines the Blueprint for a Safer Economy's reopening allowances.
