Stay Healthy

Wear a Mask. Stay 6-feet apart.

If you have to go outside:

  • Avoid groups
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a face covering such as a bandanna, scarf, or cloth covering, as outlined in the County Health Order
  • Keep 6 feet between you and everyone else at all times
  • Reduce the time you are around others outside the home
  • Minimize your exposure and your contact with people outside your household
  • Wipe any surfaces you need to touch with antibacterial wipes
Wear a Mask

If you are sick, over 60 or have a chronic health condition, do not go outside.

You can go outside if you are currently healthy and not in a vulnerable population. Take a walk with your housemates, take your kids on a bike ride, walk the dog, or go for a run. Do not join in groups, and keep your distance from other people.

Only take public transit for essential activities. This will help everyone practice social distancing. If you must take Marin Transit or Golden Gate Transit, stay at least 6 feet apart, which is approximately 2 to 3 steps away.

This is why it’s important to only take public transportation for essential activities. You want to help everyone be able to practice social distancing.

You do not need to stay 6 feet apart from people in your own household.

  • Avoid spending time in community lounges and other common spaces in your building
  • Limit the number of visitors coming into your space

When you are out of your home at grocery stores, pharmacies, and farmer’s markets, that means:

  • Face masks are mandatory
  • Keep 6 feet of distance between you and others in a line
  • Practice social distancing at all times
  • No shaking hands or hugging
  • Frequently use hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Try not to touch things unless you need to
  • Give the people who serve you as much room (and patience) as you can
  • Cover your cough or sneeze (into the sleeve or elbow, not your hands)

Wash your hands frequently, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after sneezing or coughing, and after returning from outside the home. You should wash with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% ethanol.

Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily (such as tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles) with household detergent and EPA-registered disinfectants.

Review these guidelines provided by the CDC for detailed instructions of cleaning various types of objects in your home.

Everyone must wear a face covering when they are interacting with others who are not members of their household in public and private spaces, specifically when:

  • Inside public spaces or waiting in line to enter public spaces
  • Seeking health care
  • Waiting for or riding on mass transit or other shared transportation
  • In common areas of buildings, such as hallways, stairways, elevators and parking facilities.
  • Workers at businesses physically open and in areas where the public is present, likely to be present, or at any time when others are nearby.
  • Workers in any space where food is being prepared and/or packaged for sale.
  • Drivers/Operators of public transit.

Degrees of separation from coronavirus exposure

  • If you have had a positive COVID-19 test result, you should stay home.  Your Physician will monitor you and provide instructions.  You may be asked to notify your workplace by your county’s health department or physician.
  • 1st Degree Exposure: If you are a person who lives with an individual who has tested positive, you should stay home. This is sometimes called “self-quarantine”.  Your Physician will monitor you and provide further instructions.
  • 2nd Degree Exposure: If you live with a person who has been exposed to COVID-19, and they have been instructed to self-quarantine, you should check with your physician.  Generally, 2nd degree contacts, such as this, are considered low risk.  In general, individuals in this situation should report to work.  If you feel sick, you should stay home.


  • Everyone must stay home except to get food and medicine, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job.
  • Don’t gather with others. That means no dinner parties, no meeting up with friends, and no visitors. Bars, nightclubs, and gyms are closed.
  • It is OK to go outside for walks, but not in groups besides your own household.
  • If you are an older adult or someone with a serious chronic medical condition like diabetes or heart or lung disease, you are especially vulnerable and must stay home.
