In general, for a County to advance to a less restrictive tier, it must: 

  1. Be in its current tier for a minimum of three weeks; and  
  2. Meet all criteria for the next less restrictive tier two consecutive weeks prior to progress to the next tier. 

You can track Marin’s progress by viewing the Blueprint for a Safer Economy dashboard, which is updated each Tuesday afternoon to reflect the State’s calculations. 

In related news in our region, two cases of a COVID-19 variant first discovered in South Africa have been detected in California, specifically Alameda and Santa Clara counties. 

With the new COVID-19 variant in close proximity, it’s important for each us to remain vigilant—continue wearing your mask when you leave your home, limit activities with those outside your household, and always remember to practice good hygiene 


Vaccinations begin for those 65 & older
