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.  

 

Update on Face Coverings 

Today, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) confirmed it is not changing its policy yet on the wearing of face coverings to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Rather, CDPH plans to wait until June 15 before changing its policy on mask wearing in public rather than adopt recently released guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

On June 15, California plans to implement the federal guidelines and allow fully vaccinated residents to go without a mask in most indoor settings. The four-week period before then will give Californians time to focus on delivering vaccines, particularly in underserved communities. 

Dr. Matt Willis, Marin’s Public Health Officer, supports the cautious approach. “Only 54% of our community is fully vaccinated, and two weeks out from their last dose,” he said, “so almost half of us remain susceptible. That’s why waiting just a few weeks makes more sense.”  

As of May 3, face coverings are no longer required outdoors except at crowded events, and for unvaccinated people, when physical distancing cannot be maintained. In indoor settings outside of one's home, including public transportation and schools, face coverings continue to be required regardless of vaccination status. 

 

Doses for 12s-15s Continue 

Vaccinations are underway for youths aged 12 to 15, and the primary site in Marin is the Larkspur Ferry Terminal, a drive-through site operated in partnership with Curative and the Golden Gate Bridge District. It opens Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. In addition, the following one-day pop-up vaccine clinics are planned, including:  

  • Tuesday, May 18 – Coastal Health Alliance, Point Reyes Station 

  • Wednesday, May 19 – North Marin Community Services, Novato 

  • Wednesday, May 19 – former golf course parking lot in San Geronimo 

  • Thursday, May 20 – Bolinas Community Center 

  • Friday, May 21 – Hamilton Community Center, Hamilton 

  • Saturday, May 22 – Miller Creek Middle School, Marinwood 

  • Saturday, May 22 – Canal Alliance, San Rafael 

In addition, local pharmacies – such as CVS, Walgreens, Safeway and Golden Gate – are offering vaccinations for 12 & older. Appointments are required at most locations. Learn more on the vaccine finder webpage
