Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

In compliance with the County of Marin’s Shelter in Place directive, all Vivalon classes have been suspended, and the Active Aging Center will be closed. Many vital programs and services remain in place and many new programs have been developed. Please click here for an up to date list of services in operation.

A Stay at Home (also known as Shelter-In-Place) Order is in place for Marin County until further notice. The newest order, effective May 18, eases some restrictions of the previous order while efforts to strengthen containment of COVID-19 are put into place.
The Shelter-in-Place Order in Marin County remains in effect until further notice. What this means is that we all still need to practice caution in deciding when to leave our homes and for what purpose. The virus is still present in our community, and even people without symptoms can have COVID-19 and give it to others. It’s important to help protect the people we live, work, and interact with so they don’t get the virus. For adults over 65 and people with certain health conditions, being exposed to COVID-19 could be deadly. We must all continue to practice social distancing, wear facial coverings, and wash our hands frequently. For more detailed information on the latest shelter in place guidelines, click here .

The CDC states that older adults and people who have chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes and lung disease, are at increased risk for serious illness from COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. They suggest keeping medication supplies on hand and taking everyday precautions, such as those listed below. Full details can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/high-risk-complications.html

See ACL.gov/COVID-19 for CDC’s latest recommendations for people at higher risk and other updates.

How you can protect yourself:

  • Stay home as much as possible.
  • Wash your hands often with soap for at least twenty seconds (sing the “Happy Birthday song” twice). If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Stay home when you are sick or have a fever.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Get a flu shot to prevent influenza, which has symptoms like novel coronavirus.
