Read today’s CDPH communication release at CDPH: COVID-19 Guidance and Reminds Californians Vaccines, Testing and Treatment Remain Available

Marin Team Publishes Outbreak Control Strategy

This week, a team from Kaiser San Rafael and Marin County Public Health published a description of their innovative use of rapid antigen testing to control outbreaks. "Lessons from the Field: Rapid Antigen Testing is Efficient and Practical for Mitigation of COVID-19 Outbreaks in Long-Term-Care Facilities", was published in Open Forum Infectious Diseases. This research captures both the collaborative and innovative nature of the local pandemic response. The conclusions revealed thrice-weekly testing by nonlaboratory personnel is both practical and effective for COVID-19 outbreak mitigation in facilities.

Reminder: Renew Medi-Cal Coverage

In March 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) temporarily waived certain Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) requirements and conditions in response to COVID-19. The easing of these rules helped people —in all 50 states—keep their health coverage during the pandemic. However, a new law ends Medicaid continuous coverage on March 31, 2023, and requires states to restart eligibility renewals beginning April 1, 2023. Begin the process at Medi-Cal 2023 - Marin Community Clinic (marinclinic.org).

Update Cal-Fresh Information to Ensure Benefits  

Cal-Fresh is the state program that provides assistance to low-income families for purchasing food. Some Cal-Fresh benefits are changing with the end of the pandemic state of emergency. Make sure you’re getting all the Cal-Fresh benefits you are eligible for by ensuring the county has your most recent information such as:

  • Household size
  • Income
  • Housing costs
  • Medical expenses (only if you are age 60+ or have a disability)
  • Dependent or childcare costs

Update your information by calling 1-877-847-3663 or visit www.CalFreshFood.org.
