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. 

 

Masks Remain Advisable for Travel  

Today, a federal judge in Florida voided the mask mandate for travel on airlines and other public transportation, effective immediately. Several airlines have already indicated masks will no longer be required on domestic flights.  

Marin County Public Health continues to strongly recommend mask use during travel, especially in crowded indoor settings such as airline terminals and gates, and while on an aircraft when social distancing is not possible. Travelers should be aware that others who are traveling are now less likely to be wearing masks, increasing risk of exposure. Residents who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 should consider additional measures, such as wearing a well fitted KN95 mask during travel.  

See GetVaccinatedMarin.org for additional recommendations of how you can protect yourself and your family.  

 

Your Actions Saved Lives! 

Two years into the pandemic, Marin residents continue to step up and fight COVID-19. The first shelter-in-place policy in the nation was instituted locally on March 17th. . Marin was among the 6 jurisdictions across the Bay Area to be the first to take that action. While there were impacts to our economy, we also know that effective lockdowns prevented infections and saved lives. The past two years have been challenging for all of us. It wasn’t easy, but your actions saved lives.  

 #KeepItUpCalifornia by wearing your mask in higher-risk situations, testing when you have symptoms, and getting vaccinated and boosted when eligible.

Vaccination Opportunities in Marin 

If you know someone who is still in need of a primary vaccination dose or booster shot, please share the list below with them! While Marin County remains one of the most highly vaccinated within the state and the nation, many eligible residents have yet to receive their booster shot. Staying up to date on our vaccines is just as important as receiving an initial series.    

Bolstering our immunity against COVID-19 is of utmost importance, especially with the continued presence of coronavirus, including the Omicron variant, in our community. Fortunately, we have access to vaccines which are a FREE and effective resource for keeping us protected.     

Upcoming vaccination clinics this week with open appointments:    

  • Northgate Mall   
    (Located in the Center Court)  
    San Rafael – April 21 & 22  

  • Margaret Todd Senior Center  
    (In Hill Community Room)

Walk-ups are welcome at most vaccination providers across the county. Visit the Vaccine Finder webpage to view available clinics and schedule an appointment. Remember, vaccine recipients between the ages of 5 to 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive a vaccination.   

If you are unable to find a COVID-19 vaccination clinic open at a time that works with your schedule, more options are available by visiting California Department of Public Health’s MyTurn COVID and flu vaccination scheduling website.  

We are grateful to everyone in our community who has done their part by getting fully vaccinated and boosted when eligible.
