Many Marin County parks and open spaces began reopening to motorized access on May 18, thanks to an updated public health order from Marin Health and Human Services. To help residents find out which parks and open spaces are currently open and in what capacity, Marin County Parks has created an online guide with listings for Central, North, South, and West Marin. If you plan to visit a county park, please remember to practice social distancing and carry a face covering to wear as needed. Additional guidance on safe and responsible park use during the COVID-19 epidemic may be found at bayareaoutdoors.org.
Marin Health and Human Services has launched a new webpage that measures Marin County’s progress in containing COVID-19. The data will help public health officers assess to what extent they can continue to loosen the shelter-in-place order. More information on the process for relaxing the order may be found on the Marin Recovers website.
Progress indicators are being tracked in five categories:
- Cases and Hospitalization
- Hospital Capacity
- Case Investigation and Contact Tracing
- Personal Protective Equipment
The new webpage complements the county’s Surveillance Update, which includes daily updates on the number of new cases and the number of people currently in the hospital for COVID-19. Also included are charts and tables showing cumulative data and trends, as well as a map showing the total number of confirmed cases within six geographic areas of Marin.
