PRESS RELEASE

EVENT: COVID-19 Response
DATE: 3/16/2020
TIME: 1200 hours

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Town of Tiburon will be proclaiming a local emergency today, Monday March 16.  This is a preemptive measure to assist in our ability to quickly respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the onset of which has triggered significant changes in social contact protocols worldwide.  Adapting to these changes with understanding, patience, and cooperation will help move us all through this situation safely.

 The Proclamation allows the Town to take the steps necessary to ensure the safety of our community and Town staff in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. These steps could include:

  • Streamlined purchasing to secure the resources necessary to respond in a timely manner.
  • The implementation of rules or regulations, as needed for the protection of life or property.
  • The implementation of programs or services to protect life or property.
  • Ramping up or down of Town service delivery in response to COVID-19 social distancing protocols.
  • The recovery of costs related to any of these responses.

No cases of patients with COVID-19 have been reported on the Tiburon Peninsula at this time.  Precautionary measures are being taken county-wide, as well as around the Bay Area and throughout the Country to limit the spread of COVID-19 by minimizing social gatherings and person to person contact where the virus could more easily be spread.  We are currently assessing the delivery of various Town services, and will likely be making appropriate temporary adjustments to Town operations within the next 24 hours.

The best way to reduce the risk of becoming infected with a respiratory virus, whether the flu or COVID-19, is to practice good hygiene.

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing;
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available;
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or crook of your elbow (not your hands). If you use a tissue, throw it away and wash your hands afterward;
  • Avoid touching your face;
  • Stay home from work or school if you have a fever or are feeling sick;
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe;
  • Get your flu shot to protect against flu.
