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.  

 

New Health Order Aims To Ensure Testing Quality 

In response to recent concerns about rogue, pop-up COVID-19 testing sites, the Marin County Public Health Officer has issued an order that requires testing providers meet standards of safety, quality and certification if they are providing testing in Marin County. While Marin County public health continues to encourage use of home-based testing kits, for those seeking laboratory-based tests we recommend the use of reputable and established providers. The order is designed to ensure that Marin residents can feel confident in the quality and safety of the testing operations available locally.  Read the health order for more information. 

 

Clarification on Indoor Mask Use in Marin County 

Today, the city and county of San Francisco announced changes to its indoor mask mandate that has raised questions about mask requirements in Marin County.  

Currently, Marin County is held to California’s statewide mask mandate, which requires that all people, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces and workplaces. Marin residents and businesses are to comply with California Department of Public Health’s face covering guidance.  

While Marin and San Francisco's face covering was similar in Fall of 2021, Marin aligned with the State of California in late December. Therefore, all previous exemptions for small groups of fully vaccinated people were removed and Marin is unable to implement less restrictive policies than the State’s mandate.   

The State of California has carved out few exceptions to its mask guidelines, including exercise for intervals of heavy exertion. Review the CDPH’s face covering Q&A for details.   

 

Isolation & Quarantine Calendars 

Staying safe and protecting our community from COVID-19 doesn’t stop after you’re vaccinated, it also includes taking the right steps if you think you’ve been infected. Isolation guidance varies slightly according to whether you’ve tested positive with symptoms, positive without symptoms, or have symptoms without getting tested. Additionally, if you’ve been in close contact with someone who is COVID-19 positive, the precautions differ depending on your vaccination status. Understanding what actions to take if a potential infection occurs may feel overwhelming. We have created a series of isolation and quarantine calendar graphics, in both Spanish and English, to clearly outline what to do next if you are COVID positive or have been exposed to someone who is. 

Below is a visual calendar for people who are COVID-19 positive, with symptoms, who get tested:

All Isolation and Quarantine Calendar graphics can be found on our Communications Toolkit page. Visit our Isolation and Quarantine page for more detailed guidance. 

 

“Active Case” Definition Receives an Update 

Earlier this month, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) introduced revised guidance shortening the length of time required in isolation or quarantine. In order to maintain consistency with the updated guidance, “Active Cases”, which were previously reported in our Status Update as cases diagnosed within the last 14 days, will now reflect cases diagnosed within the previous 10 days. 

The isolation and quarantine calendars (above) were designed to make these changes easy to understand. Links to these calendars and more information about current isolation and quarantine guidance can be found on our isolation or quarantine page.
