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.

Flu Season: Looking Back and Forward

May 20th was the end Flu season as defined by the CDC. This past season we saw an unusually early and steep climb in flu activity in November and December. Widespread flu and COVID vaccination helped limit hospital surges. Forecasting next flu season is challenging as the COVID pandemic wanes. All of us, especially elderly and immunocompromised residents, should receive the influenza vaccine when it becomes available in late summer or early fall. Marin Public Health will continue to track flu using wastewater and clinical data and inform the public when activity begins to rise again.

Survey Informs Local Pandemic Response

In 2022, Marin Public Health conducted a Rapid Community Assessment (RCA) to gain a better understanding of local needs, concerns, and challenges in our pandemic response. The results, which are now posted, provided valuable insights to refine our response. For example, we found lower awareness of free oral treatment in our low-income communities. In response, Community Response Teams targeted free COVID-19 medication outreach and access. For complete survey results visit: Marin County COVID-19 Rapid Community Assessment.

Marin COVID Level

Average wastewater virus levels have stabilized at a low level. There remains variability between communities in Marin, and virus levels are higher than they were in 2021, prior to the arrival of the now dominant Omicron strains. Hospitals have not reported any significant changes in COVID-19 patient census.

988: New Lifeline for Suicide and Crisis Intervention 

When mental health crises, substance use emergencies, or behavioral health challenges arise, there's a lifeline you can turn to—dial 988. Whether you're personally experiencing a crisis or witness someone in need, help is available. The line is staffed 24/7, and you’ll reach a real person.
