The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published two times per week 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.



Updated Guidance for New or Expecting Mothers

Growing your family should be an exciting experience, and California public health officials have issued helpful guidance for new or expecting mothers who may have concerns about COVID-19 illness or exposure.

Breastfeeding During COVID-19

Updated on August 15, the guidance tackles questions such as is it safe to breastfeed while infected with COVID-19, tips for expressing breastmilk in a work setting that is at higher risk for exposure to the virus, and more. View the guidance and additional resources: Guidance for Breastfeeding During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Vaccination During Pregnancy

Updated on August 17, the guidance answers questions about vaccine safety and effectiveness for both mother and baby, lowering risk of exposure while pregnant and other concerns. View the complete guidance here: Guidance for Vaccination During Pregnancy



Your Smartphone Can Help Notify You of Possible Exposure

Sign up for COVID-19 exposure notifications from CA Notify. Also, individuals who test positive for COVID-19 – including those who test at home – are able to alert others of a potential exposure more quickly and conveniently. Individuals can now initiate the notification process as soon as they are aware of their positive test result. For more information, please visit the "Notify Others" page on CA Notify.



We should not have to remind you, but... 

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches), or believe you have been exposed, get tested, call your health care provider, and stay home and away from others.

Free, confidential testing is available in Marin. Know what to do if you test positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19. If you do test positive, remember to report your result with our self-test reporting form!
