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. 

 

Podcast – Dr. Willis on Education, Access and Policy 

Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County Public Health Officer, was recently invited by Databricks to voluntarily participate in the podcast series, Databrew, focused on data science. In this episode, Dr. Willis shares the three pillars of public health: education, access, and policy, and the critical role data plays to inform our strategies.

New Schedule for COVID-19 Status Updates 

Beginning next week, the frequency of our Status Updates will change. The new schedule will be two days a week, publishing on Tuesdays and Fridays, except on holidays. The change in frequency will not compromise the quality of information provided. We will continue to keep our community up to date on relevant COVID-19 news and issues that are important to Marin County and appreciate your continued readership and feedback.    

Remember, our COVID-19 Data page and Vaccine Data page are updated daily and will maintain that frequency. We invite you to visit the public information section on our homepage which will continue to be an immediate link to the latest information on topics like testingvaccine clinicsisolation and quarantine and business resources.

 

Why I Boost Campaign 

We are proud to announce a new informational campaign developed in collaboration with Marin community-based organizations and neighborhood leaders called “Why I Boost.” Even though Marin County has one of the highest COVID-19 vaccination rates in the nation, disparities exist among those who are boosted and unboosted within certain populations in our community. The purpose of the “Why I Boost” campaign is to share stories from Marin residents about why they decided to get their COVID-19 booster. Our decisions not only impact ourselves, but they also influence the lives of the people around us. 

Community members who voluntarily appeared in the campaign represent the communities of Marin City, San Rafael, Novato and West Marin. These compelling images and statements are being shared on television, buses (see samples below), online, and on posters around our county. A communications toolkit has been created so community members can help amplify the conversation and share the importance of receiving a COVID-19 booster.  

Completing your primary vaccination series and staying up to date lowers your risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death. If you or someone you know is still unboosted, visit one of our free COVID-19 vaccination clinics to keep your immunity up to date!
