City of Sausalito Takes Precautionary Measures Against COVID-19

Post Date:03/13/2020 6:30 PM

The City of Sausalito is working closely with Marin County Health and Human Services (HHS) and the California Department of Public Health to identify and implement ways to protect the health of residents and visitors, particularly our most vulnerable populations.

As of Friday, March 13, the City has taken the following precautionary measures to reduce the severity of a coronavirus outbreak in Sausalito:
  • All non-essential meetings of boards and commissions have been suspended for the month of March. The March 18 meeting of the Planning Commission is still expected to take place, but will offer alternatives for virtual participation.
  • Steps will be taken to increase social distancing at any in-person meetings that remain on the calendar.
  • All Sausalito Library programs for adults and children have been canceled through March 31, 2020. Many of the chairs inside the library have been removed to increase social distancing. The library will also be extending due dates and waiving any overdue fines on its materials. 
  • The Friends of the Library Bookstore has temporarily suspended operations.
  • The Ice House Visitor Center and Historic Museum in downtown Sausalito is closed until further notice.
  • After-school programs from Parks and Recreation have been canceled through March 29 to align with guidance from the Marin County Office of Education and Marin HHS.
  • Playland at the MLK Gym is also closed through March 29.
  • Bocce League matches have been canceled through Friday, March 20.
  • Activities of the Edgewater Seniors for March 2020 have been canceled.
  • All other non-essential City meetings, programs, and events through the month of March are currently being evaluated.
  • Where possible, the cleaning frequency is being increased for public facilities, including City Hall, the Sausalito Library, and public bathrooms.
  • City employees are being encouraged to follow Marin HHS guidelines for reducing the transmission of germs.
  • The City is supporting local merchants in their efforts to take all necessary precautions against the spread of COVID-19.
This is a rapidly evolving situation, and the City of Sausalito will be providing regular updates on the City website. Any urgent updates will be distributed in special editions of Sausalito Currents. The coronavirus page of the Marin County Health and Human Services Department remains the primary source of information about COVID-19 as it affects all residents of the county.
