Marin Launches its Own Vaccine Incentive

With the deadline to participate in the State of California’s “Vax for the Win” program just around the corner, Marin County Public Health is urging all remaining unvaccinated residents to get vaccinated this week for a chance to win the big prize. In addition, the County will supplement the state’s vaccine lottery by offering a local vaccine incentive.

As the state gets closer to the June 15 reopening, Public Health hopes to best serve community needs. A $25 grocery store gift card will be provided to new vaccine seekers at select Marin County vaccination sites while supplies last.  

Later this week, Public Health will update its online vaccine finder tool to highlight the specific vaccination sites that will offer the gift card incentive. Those gift cards will be handed out immediately following the first dose.

See the County’s full news release.

 

Update on Sick Leave for COVID-Exposed Employees

Businesses in unincorporated Marin County with 25 employees or more will be financially covered through reimbursements as they pay sick leave for COVID-exposed workers through September 30. The Board of Supervisors passed an urgency ordinance June 8 to help support efforts to reduce spread of COVID-19 and assist sick workers who need to quarantine and miss work.

In March 2021, California Senate Bill 95 required employers to pay supplemental sick leave to reduce chances that workers would go to work while sick. To further reduce those chances, federal tax credits for businesses were recently extended through September 30 via the American Rescue Plan. 

Learn more about Marin’s urgency ordinance.

 

Rental Assistance Remains Available

Hundreds of thousands of federal dollars are trickling down to Marin landlords as relief for COVID-19-related economic hardship. In this session of economic hardship relief, there is $16 million to distribute as part of the federal Consolidated Appropriations Act, intended to prevent evictions and homelessness. The applications for tenants and landlords are available on the County’s rental assistance website in a variety of languages.
