Marin County Public Health Leads Local Response to Coronavirus

Reduce Risk of Respiratory Virus
The City of Sausalito will be coordinating with Marin County Public Health to provide updates on the novel (new) coronavirus as it affects residents. Going forward, we will publish any County news releases related to the coronavirus to the City website. If there is urgent news, it will be sent as a special edition of Currents. Marin County Public Health has also created a new web page with updates, links, and frequently asked questions at marinhhs.org/coronavirus.

The novel coronavirus, which causes the disease known as COVID-19, is a member of the same family of viruses that causes colds. Treatment is similar to that for other viral infections.

Marin County Public Health encourages everyone to practice good hygiene to reduce your risk of becoming infected with a respiratory virus like influenza or COVID-19:
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available
  • Cover your cough or sneeze
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Stay home from work or school if you are sick
  • Get your flu shot to protect against flu
There are currently no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Marin County residents. Marin residents who have recently returned from areas with community transmission, such as Italy, are considered low risk and are not being asked to isolate at home. However, if they develop symptoms such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, they should contact their healthcare provider and inform them of their symptoms and their travel history. 

If you are considering foreign travel, the CDC maintains a web page with COVID-19 information for travelers and travel related industries.

Any questions or concerns may be directed to the Communicable Disease Control Unit of the Marin County Health and Human Services Department at (415) 473-4163.

Study of Local Economy Forwarded to City Council for Review

Ken Hira
Ken Hira presenting the Draft Land Economics Study at the joint meeting
At a joint meeting on February 27, the Business Advisory Committee and the Hospitality Business Development Committee received a presentation on the draft version of a Land Economics Study for Sausalito, a comprehensive study of the local business economy. A complete video recording of the meeting, which also included a mid-year report on the City's 2020 Economic Development Program, is available on the City website.

The Draft Land Economics Study was presented by Ken Hira and Thomas Jirovsky of Kosmont Companies, the authors of the report. The study includes a ten-year review of revenue data and trends and offers 30 suggestions of ways to improve business conditions in Sausalito, including increasing the number of hotel rooms, allowing smaller chains, conducting an engineering study of infrastructure needs in the Marinship, making major revisions to the zoning ordinance and the General Plan, and streamlining the approval process for businesses operating within priority categories established by the City.

The study shows that over 50% of the revenue that funds the City's operating budget and services comes from revenues generated from business sources. A large portion of these revenues is from two business areas in Sausalito: Downtown/Central Bridgeway and Marinship/Inland. The businesses of Downtown/Central Bridgeway consist primarily of restaurants, hotels, and retail shops. Marinship/Inland includes businesses in the categories of general industrial, business office and commercial, restaurants, marine industrial and commercial, and applied arts (creative agencies, architects, interior designers, etc.).

The study also emphasizes that, despite the strong economy in the Bay Area over the last few years and increases in tourism in San Francisco, tourism in Sausalito (one of the City's key revenue sources) has been dropping. This has contributed to a lack of growth in sales tax revenue in Sausalito for five consecutive years.

The presentation by Kosmont Companies was followed by questions from members of the Business Advisory Committee and the Hospitality Business Development Committee, comments from the public, and discussion among the committee members.

At the close of the joint meeting, both committees voted to forward the Draft Land Economics Study to the City Council for review at its regular meeting on Tuesday, March 24.

Any questions or comments about the Land Economics Study may be directed to Yulia Carter, Assistant City Manager and Administrative Services Director, at ycarter@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4105.
