Marin County District 4 Supervisor, Dennis Rodoni was on KWMR yesterday talking about the next steps in terms of public health orders. He did not confirm that on Monday, June 1 the beaches would open, but strongly suggested that was a possibility. I put together a rough transcript, but I suggest you listen to it to get show to get the actual statement:

"We are moving to relaxing the outdoor activities. Including the coastal beaches and parks will most likely be opening June 1 unless we have a change in the data.

The approach is to try and open up all the coastal beaches and parks at once. So that we can hopefully distribute the amount of visitors. If we can open up all the facilities in Marin through Sonoma and Mendocino is already open. We can spread the visitation around to the area and not be too impactful for any one community.

The villages are still uncomfortable with a lot of people coming into their communities. But the real nuts and bolts of it is, they’re not seeing enough data related to outdoor activities that would warrant them restricting anymore visitation. More people are being infected in enclosed spaces than outdoors.” (thx ABF)
Sheriff presence in Seahaven in Inverness today presumably because of the influx of beach going traffic to Shell Beach yesterday.
"Coronavirus cases in Marin have climbed by more than 50% over the past two weeks, bringing the county’s total to 420 on Tuesday. The county has reported five of its six highest one-day jumps in cases in those two weeks since May 12, when there were 271 cumulative cases.

“It’s concerning,” said Dr. Matt Willis, the county’s chief public health officer, noting that Marin’s coronavirus curve is increasing.

Almost 200 people who have tested positive in Marin — roughly half of the county’s total — live in an area that includes San Rafael and surrounding neighborhoods, according to data provided by the county Department of Health and Human Services. The department only provides a breakdown of cases for five regions within the county. An area that includes Novato has almost 100 cases, the Southern Marin area has 59, Central Marin has 46 and West Marin has 15.

Willis said he plans to extend Marin’s stay-at-home order, which is set to expire June 1, but he will ease certain restrictions depending on this week’s test results and hospitalizations. More cases could mean more restrictions will stay in place, he said."

Unfortunately I'm a little late to this story, but there was a whale (or two) in Tomales Bay last night (Friday) near the Hog Island Oyster Farm. The Marine Mammal center was contacted. Did anyone else see them? Are they still there? Negative low tide this morning. From Roz and Geo in Marshall. Photo credit: George Merrill
