Marin CIL and the Shelter-in-Place Order

Posted on March 19, 2020


Marin CIL is adhering to the Shelter in Place ordinance issued by County of Marin's Public Health Department and has transitioned to a virtual office.

Dear Friends,

Marin CIL is adhering to the Shelter in Place ordinance issued by County of Marin's Public Health Department and has transitioned to a virtual office. We strongly advise that all community members adhere to this ordinance and practice a strict policy of social distancing.

In Marin CIL's virtual office, staff are available through phone, email, or Zoom during our normal work schedules- 9 am to 5pm and all departments continue to provide services. Staff are checking voicemail and email regularly.

While there are many different resources available, we wanted to share a few for our Access and Functional Needs community members and families.
