Marin’s Indoor Face Covering Mandate Update 

After satisfying criteria tied to COVID-19 transmission, hospitalization rates and vaccination progress, Marin County Public Health has lifted the local indoor face covering mandate, which required everyone to wear face coverings in indoor public places, regardless of vaccination status.  

What does this mean? Marin will now revert to California Department of Public Health (CDPH) masking guidance which requires those who are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated to mask in all indoor public settings. CDPH masking guidance also requires everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask in the following indoor settings: 

  • Public transit  
  • Hospitals  
  • Long-term care facilities  
  • Homeless shelters  
  • Indoors in K-12 schools, childcare, and other youth settings 

Masks are not required outdoors but are strongly recommended in crowded environments.  Everyone is strongly encouraged to also wear masks indoors at private gatherings where vaccination status cannot be confirmed. In addition, some local businesses may choose to continue requiring masks for all patrons, plus other Bay Area Counties still have a masking mandate in effect. If in doubt, be prepared and bring a mask.
