THINGS TO KNOW RE: COVID-19
Marin Villages Changes
In light of the County’s recent changes to the shelter-in-place order, and after consultation with our wonderful volunteers, starting this week, we have made the changes listed below, subject to volunteer availability.
It is important to remember, however, that “opening up” is not synonymous with “safe.” We strongly encourage both members and volunteers to carefully balance the risk of leaving home or interacting with more people with the potential for serious illness resulting from possible exposure to the virus. The County Public Health Officer is still recommending that older adults continue to shelter-in-place as much as possible. Instances of COVID-19 cases, as well as the rate of infection, both continue to prove that COVID-19 is still a serious public health risk, especially for older adults. The office still has masks available if you need one! Please call (415) 457-4633.
We are adjusting our operations as follows:
Please note that because of the proximity issues that arise in providing rides or entering homes, for the time being, we are NOT ready to offer rides to visit friends or family, to accompany a volunteer for shopping or errands, to take a member to a restaurant to eat, or to a swimming pool or park that is not within walking distance. Nor are we ready to ask volunteers to perform in-home services (other than emergency handyman services). In light of the continued risks associated with COVID-19, we are taking a measured, cautious approach to extending Marin Villages' activities and services. Further changes will await additional experience under the revised shelter-in-place order.
