Travel Safely This Summer    

If you are planning on traveling, either domestically or internationally, we recommend you visit our travel page and the CDC travel page. Additional resources are available in our Travel FAQs. The CDC recommends that anyone who is not fully vaccinated wait until they have completed their vaccination series before making plans.   

For those who are fully vaccinated and intend to go out of town, here are some simple steps to follow before departing:  

  • Assess your risk by visiting the CDC COVID-19 Travel recommendations by destinations page.  
  • Make a digital copy of your vaccination card (such as taking a photo of your card)  
  • Protect your vaccination card by guarding it in a plastic sleeve (lamination is not recommended at this time in case it is determined that a future booster shot is needed)  
  • Follow the mask mandates & social distancing requirements of the destination  
  • Know who to contact if you develop symptoms of Covid-19 while traveling  
  • Wear a mask while using public transit (planes, buses, trains etc.)  
  • Self-monitor for Covid-19 symptoms upon returning   

For those looking to travel outside of the country, it is imperative that you:  

  • Contact your office of Foreign Affairs beforehand  
  • Review country specific travel vaccination requirements   
  • Review country specific Covid-19 restrictions   
  • Review airline specific travel restrictions  

Note: We recommend you verify that the information on your digital vaccination record matches your physical vaccination card. Any error correction requires an average of 2 to 3 weeks to process, so we advise you do this as soon as possible. You can verify your information online

Emergency Preparedness Becomes a ‘Must’ 

Here are the top three things a Marin resident can do right now to make sure you’re ready for an emergency situation: 

  1. Sign up for emergency alerts: 
    AlertMarin will tell you when you need to take action in an emergency. Sign up to receive alerts for addresses that are important to you, including your home, work, child’s school, or close family members.  
    Nixle provides informational alerts based on ZIP codes, such as for a road closure or police activity in one’s area. 

  1. Pack a Go Bag so all the necessities are on hand when it’s time to leave in a hurry.  Include helpful items specific to a disaster, such as an N95 mask to aid breathing during times of heavy wildfire smoke, or extra battery back-ups to power necessary electronics. 

  1. Print out an evacuation checklist and evacuation map to help members of your household know what to do and where to go.  

Also, Marin County has a new public emergency portal where urgent information will be updated when a disaster unfolds. The site, at emergency.marincounty.org, including interactive mapping features to detail areas affected by an emergency, evacuation zones, and more. 

During major Marin fire, the Marin County Fire’s hotline at (415) 473-7191 will be a resource for updates on fire status, size, containment, and any related evacuation or shelter information. Add that number to your address book today. 

In addition, take steps during non-emergency times to make sure your family, home, and neighborhood are prepared. Here are a few key activities and resources we strongly recommend: 

  • Make a plan with your household members. Talk through it and practice together. 
  • Learn more about fire-resistant landscaping and home hardening through FireSafe Marin
  • Work together with your neighbors: Join the FireWise group for your neighborhood. 

Detailed information about emergency preparedness can be found on ReadyMarin.org, and FireSafeMarin.org
