Reduce Your Risk: Keeping Your Family Safe    

Marin Public Health encourages families to take into consideration young children or family members that may be more vulnerable to COVID. Whether planning a gathering or making travel plans, choose safer activities that will lower risk of COVID-19 infection for the whole family. 

How can I protect my unvaccinated family members? 

These are the best ways to protect your unvaccinated family members, including children who cannot get vaccinated yet: 

Choose safer activities for your family. 

  • Outdoor activities are safer than indoor ones. If you are indoors, choose a location that is well ventilated, for example a room with open windows, and wear a mask
  • Avoid activities that make it hard to stay 6 feet away from others. 
  • If your family member is younger than 2 years old or cannot wear a mask, limit visits with people who are not vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown and keep distance between your child and other people in public. 

Regardless of which safer activities your family chooses, remember to protect yourself and others. If you are fully vaccinated, see When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated

How do I protect a family member who has a condition or is taking medications that weaken their immune system? 

  • Get vaccinated yourself. COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of people getting COVID-19 and can also reduce the risk of spreading it. 
  • People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may NOT be protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider. 
  • If you live with someone who has a weakened immune system or is at increased risk for severe disease, you might choose to wear a mask in all indoor public settings even after it is no longer required.
