The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays 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.  

Back-to-School Vaccination 

With the Delta variant surging in Marin County, Marin County Public Health officials strongly recommend parents of children and adolescents eligible for COVID-19 vaccination to get fully vaccinated before the start of school. They are also reminding parents to make sure their children’s vaccines are current before the first day of school or child care. 

State law requires that students receive certain vaccines or they won’t be permitted to attend school or child care, unless they have a valid exemption. This can be challenging for busy parents who are preparing their kids to enter kindergarten or child care for the first time. Parents should also be aware that vaccinations are also required for students entering seventh grade

The COVID-19 vaccination is a safe and effective tool that slows the spread of disease, decreases hospitalizations, and prevents deaths.  Vaccinating eligible children and adolescents also reduces community transmission.

Reduce Your Risk: Gatherings 

During the summer months, when the weather is nicer and more events are taking place, it can more of a challenge to protect ourselves from COVID-19. Gatherings, big and small, carry varying levels of risk for those who attend. We can protect those we care about and ourselves by following a few steps: 

Step 1: 
Get vaccinated. Before deciding on attending or hosting an event, the most reliable resource against COVID-19 and the Delta variant is getting a vaccine.  

Step 2:  
Assess the risk. Understanding the number of people involved, the location, the duration of the event, the activities that will be involved, and the potential of exposure while arriving at the gathering are valuable in determining whether it’s safe.  

Step 3:  
Have the appropriate supplies available. Hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and masks.  

Step 4:  
Practice safe habits to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Staying home or attending the event virtually (if possible) is an option if you are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If you do not know the vaccination status of those attending then use a face covering, especially indoors. Wash or clean your hands often, respect the personal space of others, avoid touching your face and consider bringing your own supplies (food, drinks, silverware). 

For more information about how to stay safe when attending a gathering, please review the CDC website or the California Department of Public Health for Mega Event Guidance.
