Bay Area Counties Require Masking Indoors for Everyone    

Vaccination continues to protect against severe COVID-19 illness, but with the COVID-19 Delta variant now infecting a small percentage of vaccinated people as well as many unvaccinated people, eight Bay Area health officers have issued Health Orders requiring masks indoors in public places. The Orders require all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings, with limited exceptions, starting at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, August 3rd. 

At 12:00pm, the health officers from participating jurisdictions gathered to announce the new restrictions and explain the rationale behind the mandate.

Reduce Your Risk: Vaccination 

Vaccination remains the most effective tool to reduce your risk associated with COVID-19. Every vaccine currently authorized for use in the US does what it is supposed to do: build immunity. This means that if you are vaccinated and still manage to contract COVID-19, the severity of disease and severity of symptoms will be less than if you remain unvaccinated.  

Delta is different. The Delta variant is much more adept at finding and infecting unvaccinated individuals than previous strains, and Delta is active as the predominant strain in our community and across the nation. In Marin, there have been a small number of breakthrough cases in fully vaccinated individuals, however those have largely avoided hospitalizations and severe outcomes (the exceptions being those with underlying health conditions.) 

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: 

  • Monday, August 2 – Kerner Showers, San Rafael (12 and older) 
  • Tuesday, August 3 – Marin City Health & Wellness Center (12 and older) 
  • Tuesday, August 3 – Downtown Novato Farmer’s Market (12 and older) 
  • Wednesday, August 4 – Dollar Tree, Ignacio Shopping Center (12 and older) 
  • Thursday, August 5 – Dining Under the Lights, San Rafael (12 and older)
