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. 

Additional Booster Available Soon for 50 & Older and Immunocompromised Groups 

Today, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup (WSSSRW) approved a second booster dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for certain groups. The additional booster shot is for people who received their first booster more than four months ago and are: 

FDA and CDC's authorized a second booster dose for those groups on March 29. In addition, CDPH and CDC recommend anyone who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of Johnson & Johnson at least four months ago is eligible to receive an additional Pfizer or Moderna booster dose.  

Examples of moderate or severe immunosuppression include people on chemotherapy or who have had a solid organ transplant, like a kidney transplant or heart transplant. This also includes people who have an immunodeficiency, have an advanced or untreated HIV infection, or are undergoing treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other medications that suppress immune response.  

Are you newly eligible for a second booster dose? Contact your doctor or medical provider to see if getting an additional booster dose is right for you. Marin County Public Health will begin offering second booster doses by appointment only at select locations beginning Thursday, March 31. If you meet these criteria, you can book your shot at My Turn

 

Updated Guidance: Mega Events 

Effective this Friday, April 1, 2022, the requirement for vaccine verification or proof of negative tests for attendees at indoor mega events will move to a strong recommendation. Mega events consist of crowds larger than 1,000 attendees if the gathering is held indoors, or 10,000 attendees if outdoors.  

See the full updated guidance from California Department of Public Health (CDPH).  

For additional guidance on how to stay safe in indoor public meetings, visit our Staying Safe webpage. 

 

Think Positive, Test Negative 

Testing is an essential tool we have available to help combat the spread of COVID-19 in our community. If you are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, don’t hesitate and get tested as soon as possible. This is strongly recommended even if you’re up to date on your vaccinations. It’s an easy step to take, and by finding out if you’re positive, you help others test negative. 

Alternatively, are you a close contact of someone who is COVID positive? Slow the spread by following Isolation and Quarantine guidance and getting a COVID-19 test 5 days after your exposure. Protect the ones you love by taking advantage of the testing options available in Marin County.
