Public Health Order to Shelter at Home Extended Through May 3, 2020

Post Date:04/03/2020 6:00 PM
Health officers in seven Bay Area jurisdictions โ€” including Marin County โ€” have updated a previous stay-at-home order through May 3, 2020, to preserve critical hospital capacity across the region.

The previous three-week order was set to expire on April 7. While the prior order has been effective in reducing the rate of transmission of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), it is not enough. There has been a significant increase in the number of positive cases, hospitalization, and deaths from COVID-19, which is beginning to strain health care resources.

The health officers have determined that more and stricter social distancing is needed to slow the rate of spread, prevent deaths, and stop the health care system from becoming overwhelmed.

The new order adds some clarifying language around essential business and activities, as well as some new directives. Local impacts for Sausalito include:
  • New restrictions on the types of construction allowed while the public health order to shelter at home is in place
  • The addition of the Remington Dog Park to the list of recreational facilities in Sausalito that are closed
  • A requirement that essential businesses that continue to operate facilities must scale down operations to their essential component only
  • A further reduction in operations at Sausalito City Hall, with City Manager Adam Politzer and department heads added to the ranks of those who are already working from home
Sausalito's police and fire departments continue to respond to all calls for service. Police officers are on foot patrol talking with our businesses and residents and educating the community by addressing compliance issues face-to-face.
