Marin County’s COVID-19 vaccination success and steadily reduced case rates has officially moved Marin to yellow Tier 4. The move further loosens restrictions on activities and reopening of the economy. Under the yellow tier, gyms and indoor dining can expand from 25 percent to 50 percent capacity, live events with assigned seating can expand to 67 percent and bars could reopen to 25 percent. As of today, 74.4 percent of eligible Marin residents have received two doses (or one shot of Johnson & Johnson), and 63 percent of the total population have been fully immunized (two weeks after second dose).
Marin’s vaccination rates remain the highest in the state, and the county has seen a steady decline in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths as vaccination rates continue to increase.
It is anticipated that beginning June 15, capacity and distancing restrictions will be lifted for most businesses and activities. Large-scale indoor events will have vaccination or negative test requirements for attendees through at least October 1.
