The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekly and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic response. We remain here for you.

Bivalent Booster - Should You Get One?

Here’s the latest guidance, boiled down. If you're age 65 or older, or if you’re immunocompromised, and it’s been 4 months since your last COVID-19 shot a bivalent booster is recommended. For everyone age 6 or older, if it's been over 8 months since your last shot, a bivalent booster is recommended too! Remember, the bivalent booster first became available last September, so if you haven’t had any COVID-19 shots since then, you’re not up to date. Stay informed about vaccines at Vaccine Finder


Preparing Schools for Extreme Heat

Last summer saw record temperatures in Marin. Marin County Office of Education and Marin Public Health have developed a protocol for communication and response to extreme heat for schools across Marin. Keying off National Weather Service HeatRisk forecasts, the protocol outlines thresholds for adjusting school activities to prevent heat-related illness.


Increasing Your Access to Public Health Data

One of the lessons of the pandemic was the value of providing reliable local data to our community, to promote shared understanding and guide our response. With this in mind, Marin County Public Health is expanding public access to data across a range of topics. Several “live” dashboards were recently published, including COVID-19; Influenza; overdose; Hepatitis C; life expectancy; reportable communicable diseases, and wastewater. Dashboards will be updated regularly and referred to in communications with you, our community.


May is Wildfire Awareness Month

In the era of Climate Change, adapting to the expanding threat of wildfire is essential. This Saturday, May 20 is Marin’s annual wildfire prevention festival, Ember Stomp at the Marin Fairgrounds from 11AM-5PM. To work with your neighbors to lower risks and stay informed join a Firewise Community or Neighborhood Response Group. For more information on wildfire preparedness and firewise communities visit and be sure to follow their social channels.
