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

 

A Message about Flu 

Marin County is experiencing an increase in influenza cases. Marin’s first reported flu-related death in over two years occurred in late May. Flu season is typically during fall and winter; a spring surge is very unusual. Marin County Public Health encourages residents who have not had a flu shot for the 2021-2022 flu season and are at high risk for serious illness to get a flu shot.  

Common symptoms of influenza 
The symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are very similar. Like COVID, the severity of flu varies from person to person, and include:  

  • Fever or feeling feverish/chills 
  • Cough 
  • Sore throat 
  • Runny or stuffy nose 
  • Muscle or body aches 
  • Headaches 
  • Fatigue (tiredness) 
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults 

Residents with symptoms who test negative for COVID-19 may have the flu. Those at risk for more severe illness, including those age 65 or older, should contact their medical provider for possible treatment for flu.  

 

Safe Graduation Guidance 

The school year ends with some of the largest gatherings of the year, and we all want to start our summers healthy. At the same time, COVID-19 transmission rates in Marin County are high. Large indoor gatherings including those related to graduations carry significant risk of spreading the virus. Graduations are intergenerational events where people at higher risk of severe COVID-19 are in attendance. In order to keep these events as safe as possible, in April and May 2022 Marin County Public Health issued guidance for end of year events including graduations. Recommendations include testing of attendees the day of the event and face covering indoors.
