BA.5 Variant Arrives in Marin 

Marin County continues to monitor for the local emergence of variants of concern. Two samples obtained during the first week of June shows that the new BA.5 variant of omicron, which is increasing globally, now is present in Marin. This variant is characterized by increased infectivity compared to previous omicron strains. This may be fueling transmission and partially explain the current plateau in cases, after BA.2 cases peaked nearly one month ago. There is no evidence currently that BA.5 causes more severe illness than other variants. As the virus continue to evolve, the best way to protect ourselves is to stay up to date with vaccines and boosters.  

Marin county public health will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates. Visit our Surveillance page for an overview of the variants of concern in Marin County.
