What is the correct way to mask?  

Masks are now required indoors in Marin county and many neighboring Bay Area counties.  As we retrieve those masks for indoor outings or gatherings, it’s good time to review the correct way to wear a mask to increase its effectiveness. The CDC explains correct masking as follows:  

  • A mask should fit snugly and cover both your mouth and nose.  
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before putting on your mask.  
  • Put the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin. 
  • Fit the mask snugly against the sides of your face, slipping the loops over your ears or tying the strings behind your head.  
  • If you have to continually adjust your mask, it doesn’t fit properly, and you might need to find a different mask type or brand.  
  • Make sure you can breathe easily. 

Please review CDC Masking Guidelines for additional information. 

Are Booster or Extra Shots Available in Marin?  

At this time, no vaccine provider in the United States is authorized to provide additional doses, or booster doses, for individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized Pfizer and Moderna vaccines as a 2-dose series and Janssen COVID-19 vaccine as a single dose against Covid-19.  

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not recommended, and the FDA has not authorized, any additional doses for any circumstances. The role of booster shots for certain patients is under evaluation by the federal agencies responsible for vaccinations.  

In addition, neither the CDC or the FDA have recommended or authorized the mixing of vaccines (e.g., Johnson and Johnson with Pfizer) to boost overall immunity.  

Marin County is closely monitoring updates and will work to quickly make booster vaccines available if and when recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and authorized by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
