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 and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you.

 

Vaccine Data Dashboards Updated for 6 month to 4 year olds

The Marin County Public Health epidemiology team has recently updated our vaccine data dashboards to reflect the newest group of eligible vaccine recipients: children age 6 months to 4 years of age. The “Vaccination Progress by Age” bar graph has a new section to measure the progress of that specific age group. 

In addition, the overall vaccination rate dashboard has been updated to reflect this new group. Since nearly all of Marin residents are now eligible for the vaccine, percentages for “residents having one dose” and “residents completing initial vaccine series” are for the entire population (versus only those eligible). View the data on our vaccine data webpage.

Finally, our vaccine data charts provided in the Status Update (below) have been updated to align with how the data is presented on the dashboards.

 

CDPH Releases School Guidance for 2022-2023 School Year

This week, the California Department of Public Health issued updated COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools to support safe in-person learning for the upcoming school year. The guidance, effective July 1, 2022, includes information on COVID mitigation strategies that K-12 schools can use to keep their students, staff and communities safe in the upcoming school year. The guidance is intended to support safe, in-person learning that is critical to student well-being and development and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  For more information, view the complete guidance or the Safe Schools for All Hub.
