Special MVConnect from the City of Mill Valley
COVID-19 UPDATE - March 24, 2020
Please take a moment to view this Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update to the Marin Board of Supervisors from Dr. Lisa Santora.
STAY HOME. STAY SAFE. SAVE LIVES.

For the health of our community, our children, our senior population, and those that have health concerns, please make every effort to comply with the Public Health Order:

  • Everyone must stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. It is OK to go outside for walks or other exercise if you are not in a group and following social distancing guidelines.

  • Don’t gather with others. That means no playdates, no meeting up with friends, and no visitors. The goal is to minimize the frequency of communal contacts and interactions to slow the spread of this virus.

These measures may feel extreme, but they are critical to protect our loved ones and neighbors. If we work together, we can reduce the spread of the coronavirus and save lives. But we must maintain physical distancing and stay at home.

We need everyone’s help and cooperation right now to reduce the spread of the virus.
