Shortly after the Board convenes at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a report from the County Administrator and possibly other County staff about the local COVID-19 response. The County proclaimed a local emergency and a public health emergency in early March, and since then staff has worked in an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to coordinate public response efforts. A local shelter-in-place order was first issued March 16 to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

In an urgency item, the Board will consideration an urgency ordinance to adopt administrative penalties for the violation of the County Health Officer’s Orders pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic. Towns and cities in Marin were interested in joining the County with enhanced enforcement of public health orders to help curtail the virus' spread. A new task force would collaborate with city and town personnel to focus on business violations throughout the county. The civil penalty for noncommercial health code violations related to COVID-19 would be between $25 and $500. For commercial activity, it would be $250 to $10,000.
The Board approved the urgency ordinance.

The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator for Board concurrence and adoption of a response to the 2019-20 Grand Jury Report: “Cyberattacks: A Growing Threat to Marin Government” (May 11, 2020).
