County creates pop-up program to address long-term school closures

San Rafael, CA – The County of Marin has collaborated with several other agencies to create the new Marin County Emergency PopUp Childcare Program to support health care workers, first responders, disaster service workers, and all other essential workers working or living in Marin while classroom instruction has been suspended during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

The program is being offered by the County of Marin, the Marin County Office of Education, the Marin County Free Library, the City of San Rafael, the North Bay Children’s Center, Community Action Marin, and Marin YMCA.

Space in the programs is limited. All childcare centers follow social distancing, sanitation, and hygiene practices described in detail in a March 13 Public Health Advisory.
