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.

 

Vaccine Eligibility Opens to People Age 16 & Older

The day has come: all Marin County residents age 16 and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, regardless of occupation or medical history. Everyone is encouraged to schedule an appointment through the County’s website GetVaccinatedMarin.org.

The County is continuing its intensive outreach efforts to ensure that communities most impacted by COVID-19 have ready access to vaccine appointments and information. This includes prioritizing a portion of vaccine for groups and communities who have been disproportionally impacted by COVID-19 infection and those most at risk of serious outcomes.  This will protect not just those who are vaccinated but reduce additional community transmission. [Learn more]

 

 

Blueprint Update: Marin Remains in Orange

Yesterday, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) provided another update on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a statewide plan for reducing COVID-19 and keeping Californians healthy and safe.

In general, for a County to advance to a less restrictive tier, it must (1) have been in the current tier for a minimum of three weeks; and (2) meet criteria for the next less restrictive tier for all three measures for the prior two consecutive weeks in order to progress to the next tier.

While Marin County remains in Orange Tier 3 for now, CDPH confirmed Marin has met the Yellow Tier 4 criteria for one week. If Marin’s data continues to improve, Marin could move into Tier 4 as early as Wednesday, April 21. You can track Marin’s progress by viewing our Blueprint for a Safer Economy dashboard, which is updated each Tuesday afternoon to reflect CDPH’s calculations.
