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. 

 

Have COVID? Remember Paxlovid Is Available!

COVID-19 rates remain at a high level in Marin and across the state, and hospitalization and death rates are beginning to rise. Paxlovid and other COVID-19 treatments are safe and effective, yet only 60 percent of Marin County residents recently surveyed knew that prescription pills were available for COVID-19 treatment.

Months of nationwide Paxlovid use reveal it’s a safe and effective therapy. Paxlovid is being prescribed to a wider range of patients, beyond the previously stricter criteria of those at highest risk for hospitalization and death. Marin County Public Health recommends anyone with symptomatic COVID-19 infection above the age of 50, and anyone with a chronic medical condition, reach out to their doctor or visit a test to treat location to obtain treatment if needed.

 

Pediatric Vaccination Progress Update

1,420 – or 16 percent -- of Marin County children age 6 months through 4 years have received the COVID 19 vaccine (as of Wednesday, July 6). Nationally, CDC estimates about 2 percent of children under 5 have been vaccinated.

A common question we are hearing from parents is about vaccine timing and differences by brand. The Pfizer vaccine is a three-dose series, with the second dose given three to eight weeks after the first, and the third dose given at least eight weeks after the second. The Moderna vaccine is a two-dose series given four to eight weeks apart.

Free At-Home COVID Tests for People who are Blind or have Low Vision

Free at-home COVID tests are now available for people who are blind or have low vision. The tests work with a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone and app to give users audible instructions and test results. Test kits come with two tests; limit one kit per household.  Learn more about ordering accessible at-home COVID-19 tests.

If you’ve tested positive with an at-home test, remember to report your result with our self-test reporting form.
