EVENT: COVID-19 ResponseDATE: 3/16/2020TIME: 1200 hours
In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Town of Tiburon will be proclaiming a local emergency today, Monday March 16. This is a preemptive measure to assist in our ability to quickly respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the onset of which has triggered significant changes in social contact protocols worldwide. Adapting to these changes with understanding, patience, and cooperation will help move us all through this situation safely.
The Proclamation allows the Town to take the steps necessary to ensure the safety of our community and Town staff in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. These steps could include:
No cases of patients with COVID-19 have been reported on the Tiburon Peninsula at this time. Precautionary measures are being taken county-wide, as well as around the Bay Area and throughout the Country to limit the spread of COVID-19 by minimizing social gatherings and person to person contact where the virus could more easily be spread. We are currently assessing the delivery of various Town services, and will likely be making appropriate temporary adjustments to Town operations within the next 24 hours.
The best way to reduce the risk of becoming infected with a respiratory virus, whether the flu or COVID-19, is to practice good hygiene.
