The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is three times per week 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. 

 

Masking Optional. Kindness Appreciated. 

Masks are no longer required in schools or childcare facilities, but they are still strongly recommended by California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Marin County Public Health (MCPH) to help protect your children, family, and community against COVID-19. 

Masking is now optional in most settings. Visit the CDPH Guidance for Face Coverings page to see where masking is still required, regardless of vaccination status. Regardless of whether you choose to mask or not to mask, please choose to be kind to others who choose differently. We may not know why our neighbor has chosen to wear a mask or not, but our community is stronger when we respect each other’s decisions and practice kindness.

Vaccination Helps Protect Mom and Baby 

If you are pregnant, you are at higher risk of getting sick, needing hospitalization or intensive care, and even death from #COVID19, than people who are not pregnant. COVID-19 also increases your chance of having a preterm baby.  

There have been a total of 116 reported COVID-19 cases among pregnant women in Marin since the start of the pandemic. Of those cases, 18 women were hospitalized and 83% of those expectant mothers were unvaccinated. Give your baby and your body the strength it needs to fight off COVID-19! The vaccines are safe, and provide the best protection against the virus, including the highly contagious variants.

What is “Long COVID” and How Do I Prevent it? 

Recently there has been a lot of discussion around long COVID. Also called long-haul COVID, post-acute COVID-19, long term effects of COVID, or chronic COVID. Long COVID is defined by the CDC as “a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems people may experience four or more weeks after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19”.  

Many people, including young adults, are suffering from long-term health problems months after they got COVID-19. New or ongoing symptoms can range from persistent cough to fatigue to “brain fog” or even joint or muscle pain. Those who have experienced severe COVID-19 illness may experience multiorgan or autoimmune long-term effects lasting weeks or months. 

The best way to prevent long COVID is by taking steps to prevent COVID-19 illness. Getting vaccinated and wearing a mask that has both good fit and good filtration, are the best ways to prevent long COVID. 

We invite you to listen to people tell their stories and visit the CDC Post-COVID Conditions webpage to learn more about long COVID. 

 

Booster Data Added to Dashboards 

Our two Vaccine Progress dashboards, located on the Marin County COVID-19 Vaccine Data page, have been updated with an additional feature. Both bar charts now include COVID-19 booster progress by age group and ethnicity. Prior to this week, the dashboards were limited to showing the percentage of Marin’s eligible population who were unvaccinated, partially vaccinated, or who had completed a vaccination series. Adding booster information to these dashboards helps frame more accurate picture of our overall vaccination progress as a community.  

 

COVID-19 Data Update: 

As of February 16, our COVID-19 Status Update changed in frequency and is now published Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays except holidays. Because these updates are no longer published on consecutive days, the last column in each data table now reflects the change from last Status Update, not a change from the previous day. 

Below is just a snapshot of local COVID-19 data. For a more in-depth analysis of COVID-19 trends, please view the Marin Data & Surveillance webpage, review our Data FAQ, or explore the raw data sets on Marin County's Open Data Portal
