Guidance on Face Coverings and Sporting Events

Youth sports are back in action, and Marin County Public Health is working to make sure the surge in exercise and crowds doesn’t lead to a surge in COVID-19 cases. Public Health officials have heard reports of kids, parents, and other spectators being maskless, which is in violation of public health guidelines.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing face coverings at outdoor sports whether participants and spectators are fully vaccinated or not. For both indoor and outdoor sporting activities, athletes should wear face coverings when not participating (on the sidelines) and worn by coaches, support staff, and observers at all times. See the California Department of Public Health’s recommendations on recreational sports.

 

Mobile Vaccine Sites: Upcoming Schedule

Marin County Public Health will close its two largest COVID-19 vaccination sites in San Rafael at the end of May as it shifts its approach to offer the free and life-saving vaccine in neighborhoods around the county. Starting May 10, first doses are no longer available at the Marin Health and Wellness Campus on Kerner Boulevard or Marin Center (Marin County Fairgrounds), but both sites will remain open through May 29 to fulfill second-dose needs. No appointments are necessary; just show up with personal identification.  

Mobile teams can provide up to 500 vaccinations per visit and are part of an effort to remove barriers to access the shot, especially in communities where few or no vaccination options exist. See Public Health’s full news release about the shift in vaccination efforts. 

Here is the schedule for Thursday and Friday:

  • May 6: Northgate Shopping Center – 5800 Northgate Drive, San Rafael (9:30am to 2:30pm)
  • May 6: Ritter Center – 16 Ritter Street, San Rafael (9:30am to 2:30pm)
  • May 6: The Village at Corte Madera – 1618 Redwood Highway, Corte Madera (10:00am to 6:00pm)
  • May 7: Marin City Health and Wellness – 630 Drake Avenue, Marin City (9:30am to 2:30pm)
  • May 7: Hamilton Community Center – 503 South Palm Drive, Novato (8:00am to 1:30pm)
  • May 7: Venetia Valley School – 177 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael (9:30am to 2:30pm)

Firefighters Take Stand Against COVID-19

As front-line responders, firefighters have seen the effects and devastation of the pandemic firsthand, and they are trusted and respected members of their communities. Governor Gavin Newsom recently announced the State of California is joining forces with the California Fire Foundation to reduce the virus’ spread by encouraging vaccination.
