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. 

 

Dashboard Updated to Reflect Reinfections 

To keep our community as informed as possible, Marin County Public Health continues to add metrics to our COVID-19 Cases dashboard. Starting today, the public can now view the number of reinfections reported daily. Reinfection means a person was infected with COVID-19, recovered, and then later tested positive again, with at least 90 days between infections. Tracking daily reinfections offers a more complete picture of daily cases and allows us to assess the impact of immunity acquired through past infection. 

View the data on the “COVID-19 Cases” Dashboard on our Surveillance webpage.  

 

SAVE THE DATE: Pediatric COVID Vaccination Virtual Forum 

Vaccines are our best hope to end the COVID pandemic. COVID vaccine is available for children age 5 and up, and boosters are now authorized for those 12 years and older. Vaccines for children age 6 months and up may be authorized next. Marin County is among the most highly-vaccinated areas in the nation. But many questions and concerns remain when it comes to vaccinating our children. 

Save the date for a virtual presentation from Marin Healthcare District where local medical specialists will discuss:  

  • Why children and teens should get vaccinated 
  • Upcoming COVID vaccinations for 2-4 year olds 
  • How parents and caregivers can determine if toddlers are having side effects 
  • Helpful tips to support children 6 months-4 years during their vaccine 
  • Booster recommendation for children under 18 
  • Where and when to get vaccinated 
  • Vaccine requirements in schools 
  • The changing rules of masking in schools and socially 
  • Variants and levels of contagion 
  • Emergency Room and clinical treatment 
  • Immunocompromised children 
  • Confronting denial and separating fact from fiction 

There will also be time for Q&A at the end of the presentation. Featured speakers include:  

  • Lisa Santora, MD Deputy Health Officer, Marin Public Health  
  • Shandra Taylor, MS, CCLS Child Life Specialist  
  • Catherine Taylor, ARDMS President, “Ouchless ER” Project

New Resource: Safe and SMART Events Playbook  

CDPH has released the Safe and SMART Events Playbook - based on the California SMARTER Plan - providing best practices and recommendations for event operators to produce safe and smart live events. 

The Safe and SMART Events Playbook recognizes that COVID-19 will remain with us for the foreseeable future and provides best practices and recommendations for event operators. We have learned a lot over the last two years, and CDPH recommendations have changed to reflect new and updated knowledge.
