The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekly and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you.

Marin Vaccine Strategy Presented to National Advisory Committee

The Marin County COVID-19 vaccine success has gained the attention of the federal government. The partnerships forged locally are held as a model for building trust and reducing barriers to access to vaccines in our most vulnerable communities.

On September 22, Dr. Willis will be presenting Marin’s vaccine equity strategy to the National Vaccine Advisory Committee in Washington DC. The presentation will be broadcast for the public, and the link will be shared in next week’s status update.

New COVID-19 Boosters Offer Enhanced Protection

Marin County Public Health and health care providers are recommending the newly authorized COVID-19 booster, which offers better protection against the currently circulating Omicron strain.

Marin County Public Health is strongly recommending the updated booster (also known as the “omicron booster” or “bivalent booster”) for anyone age 50 and older who have not received a booster in 2022, or have not experienced a COVID-19 infection in the past 6 months.

Visit the Vaccine Finder webpage to find locations that offer the updated booster. For more information about the booster, read the full news release.

RECAP: Public Health Update for the School Community

On Tuesday, Dr. Matt Willis and Dr. Lisa Santora provided a COVID-19 update for the school community.

Know your COVID-19 Community Level

The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in Marin or other community in which you live, work or visit.
