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.  

 

Bay Area Unified in Support of State Face Masking Guidance 

The Association of Bay Area Health Officials, representing 12 Bay Area Health Officers and their local health jurisdictions, strongly supports the California Department of Public Health’s strategy to continue with current masking guidance until June 15, when the state will align with the CDC’s updated masking guidance. Marin County Public Health is among the jurisdictions making a unified statement May 19. 

Large numbers of residents are still unvaccinated, not yet fully vaccinated, or not eligible to be vaccinated. This next month is critical to ensuring more of our residents can access vaccinations, and that businesses and other entities are able to prepare for implementation of the CDC’s updated masking guidance. 

Learn more in the joint statement from the Association of Bay Area Health Officials. 

 

Shift Coming in COVID-19 Call Center Support 

With more than 83% of all Marin County residents having received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and a growing number of local vaccine providers, live phone support from Marin County Public Health’s two public call lines is shifting to health care providers and the state’s hotline. 

As Public Health continues to vaccinate Marin residents, the number of calls seeking COVID-19 clarification and vaccine availability, scheduling, and locations has seen a steady decline in the past few weeks. Starting May 29, those seeking vaccine access may call the California COVID-19 Hotline at 1-833-422-4255 (CA Relay Service Dial 711) weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekend 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Public Health’s COVID-19 Call Center has answered more than 26,000 calls since it was created last year, responding to a wide array of needs.

New Videos: Indigenous Community Outreach 

With Sixto, Santos, and Lucy’s help from Solidaridad Guatemalteca, a new video series answers some of your questions about the COVID-19 vaccine in a few indigenous community languages: Mam, K'iche, Maya Yucateco. Some Marin residents agreed to participate in a video series with hopes of helping provide the community with information needed to make an informed decision regarding the vaccine.
