California Department of Public Health Extends Indoor Mask Mandate
In response to the current Omicron-related surge of cases, the statewide indoor mask mandate has been extended until at least February 15th. At that time, it will be reevaluated according to the status of the pandemic including current case rates and hospitalization data. Under this mandate, masks are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, in all indoor public settings. Surgical masks or higher-level respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, KF94s) with a good fit are recommended.
COVID-19 can easily spread between people who are in close contact with one another. To help slow COVID’s spread, protect vulnerable individuals, and prevent the healthcare system in the County of Marin from being overwhelmed, it is necessary for people who have been infected to isolate, and people who have been exposed to a person who has an active COVID infection will need to quarantine.
ISOLATION: When YOU test positive, you need to isolate. Learn more about isolation guidance here.
QUARANTINE: When you are in close contact with SOMEONE ELSE who tested positive, you need to quarantine. Learn more about quarantine guidelines here.
