Marin County has officially been assigned to Tier 3 (orange status) or “moderate” risk level as part of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The State approved this move due to fewer daily cases, a reduction in the proportion of positive tests among those who are tested, and progress in addressing the County’s lowest-income communities. The primary changes allowed under the state order as Marin moves into Tier 3:
- Allowed indoors at full capacity: personal care* and hair services; retail and grocery stores; indoor malls; libraries; hotels; office space (although continued telework is encouraged)
- Allowed indoors at 50% capacity or 200 people (whichever is fewer): restaurants; museums; places of worship; movie theaters
- Allowed indoors at 25% capacity or 100 people (whichever is fewer): gyms and fitness centers (and can utilize indoor pools); family entertainment centers; breweries and wineries that do not serve food; card rooms
- Allowed outdoors only: bars that do not serve food
* Personal Care Services include skin care, cosmetology, nail services, tattoo parlors, piercing shops, and massage therapy (in non-healthcare settings). See the complete list of businesses and activities allowed to reopen under Tier 3 (orange status).
Beginning Monday, April 5th the City of San Rafael will begin offering in-person services to the community.
The County must spend at least 21 days in Tier 3 and meet additional requirements before advancing to the next, less restrictive “minimal” risk, or Tier 4 (yellow status).
As Marin experienced earlier this year, if COVID conditions worsen, the County will move back into a more restrictive tier, so please continue to be safe—wash your hands, keep a safe distance, and wear your face mask when you leave home.

Follow Marin’s Vaccination Progress
Marin County launched its third vaccination dashboard, “Vaccinations by Race/Ethnicity and Age.” The charts show the percentage of each age group and each race/ethnicity (by age group) that have either received the 1st dose of the Pfizer/Moderna Vaccine, completed the vaccine series (2nd dose of the Pfizer/Moderna Vaccine or received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine), or have not been vaccinated.
Find out if you’re eligible for the vaccine, make an appointment, or sign up to be notified that it’s your turn on the County’s vaccine website below.
