There are plenty of free COVID-19 vaccination options coming up in Marin County. Some locations require an online appointment; others are open for walk-ups. The following one-day pop-up clinics are planned:  

  • Saturday, July 10 – Canal Alliance, San Rafael (12 and older)

New State Guidance for Schools 

Today, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) acknowledged in a news release its approval of most of CDC’s recommendations for full in-classroom instruction in the fall. California’s plan emphasizes the use of face coverings and robust testing, but not physical distancing if it presents barriers to in-person instruction. Masks will be required for all students and staff in K-12 indoor settings state-wide, regardless of vaccination status. In its announcement, CDPH indicated it would release additional K-12 guidance for California schools on Monday, July 12. Marin plans to align with CDPH’s regulations.  

Beat the Heat: Stay Safe and Cool This Weekend 

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for most of the Bay Area beginning at 12:00 PM Friday, July 9 and continuing through 11:00 PM Sunday, July 11. Hot conditions with daytime temperatures of 95 to 107 are  expected in inland areas of Marin County, with higher temperatures possible in the mountain communities. Overnight temperatures will also remain very warm,  mostly in the mid 70s, but to mid 80s in the higher elevations. 

Increased risk of heat related illnesses such as  heat exhaustion and heat stroke can occur due to prolonged  exposure to hot temperatures. People most vulnerable include  those who spend extended periods outdoors, those without air  conditioning, young children, the elderly, and those with  chronic illness.   

Beat the heat: follow Marin Health and Human Services’ tips for staying cool and safe in warm weather

If you’re unable to stay cool in your own home, you may want to visit a cooling center or other air conditioned facility, such as a library or community center. Local government may choose to open a cooling center. If you decide to visit a cooling center, remember to take your face covering or mask! California Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 face covering guidance requires that masks be worn inside cooling centers, regardless of vaccination status.  

Vaccination Status Makes A Difference 

As Marin’s vaccination rate continues to climb, many have asked about vaccination status of recent hospitalizations and deaths. Thankfully, because of Marin County’s high vaccination rates, overall hospitalizations and deaths have declined significantly.  

Since June 1, Marin County has not had any COVID-19 deaths.* Of the 12 people who have been hospitalized since June 12, all but one were unvaccinated. This data continues to reinforce the effectiveness of the vaccine, keeping hospitalizations to a minimum.  

Next week, we’ll be adding to our dashboard key elements that will help describe the vaccination status of new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.  

*NOTE: One additional COVID-19 Death reported in the July 8, 2021 Status Update was a record correction, but not a recent death. The individual passed away in August 2020 and the death was not recorded properly in our database. Ongoing data reconciliation efforts recently discovered the error.
