Masks & Face Coverings Not Needed Outdoors

We have been receiving questions regarding mask use outdoors, especially related to children’s programs. To clarify, residents are not required to wear masks outdoors in Marin County, regardless of age, vaccination status or setting. This follows state and CDC guidance.

Individuals may continue to cover their face by choice, and organizations may continue to require mask use within their own policies. Dr. Willis explained Public Health’s new face covering guidance, including the allowance to remove masks for all residents outdoors, in a recent video.

Marin Reaches 90% of Eligible Vaccine Recipients 

Yesterday, Marin County has achieved an important milestone in the pandemic response, with 90 percent of eligible residents now vaccinated with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. As of today, nearly 201,000 of Marin’s approximately 223,000 eligible residents have received at least one dose. 81.6 percent of eligible residents have completed their vaccine series.

Two recent outbreaks among unvaccinated residents in Marin have been tied to the B.1.617.2 Delta variant, labeled a variant of concern by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One was centered in the adjacent towns of Fairfax and San Anselmo, and one tied to school in Novato. Both outbreaks were controlled within 14 days and are no longer active.

“When clusters of cases rise and fall quickly among unvaccinated people, and don’t really spread further, this is what herd immunity looks like,” said Willis. “We’re seeing what community immunity could look like in Marin. The current cases are among unvaccinated residents, which is why we’re motivated to get closer to 100%.”
