The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays 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.  

 

Treat a Positive as a Positive 

Rapid antigen tests have proven effective to detect Omicron infections and reliably detect the virus in infectious people. Anyone who is considered a close contact should test three to five days after last exposure to a positive person. Marin County Public Health does not recommend confirmatory PCR tests following a rapid test with a positive result. With the high prevalence of Omicron, a positive home test does not require confirmation.  
 
Regardless of vaccination status, residents are urged to seek testing if they are feeling sick.
