March 16, 2020


On March 16, the Public Health Officers of seven Bay Area jurisdictions, including Marin, issued a legal order directing residents to shelter-at-home for three weeks beginning March 17. The order limits activity, travel and business functions to only the most essential needs.

On March 31, 2020, Marin County Public Health updated the Shelter Order. The new order extends though May 3, 2020. To view the March 31st Shelter Order and to access additional information regarding Marin County's response to the COVID-19 outbreak, visit https://coronavirus.marinhhs.org.

Scientific evidence shows social distancing is one of the most effective approaches to slow the transmission of communicable disease. Social distancing means staying at least 6 feet away from others. Other important things you can do to help prevent community spread of the virus are readily available on the Center for Disease Control website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html

To facilitate answers to questions related to the Public Health Order and updates on COVID 19, the Town has created a COVID 19 Resources Page. For community-based resources for seniors, local businesses and residents in general, please visit https://www.townofsananselmo.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?CID=8
