Disaster Preparedness Month: COVID Edition 

September is Disaster Preparedness Month. But what preventative measures can you take against a pandemic?  

These tried and true steps help prevent transmission of COVID-19: 

  • Vaccination 
  • Masking 
  • Hand Hygiene 
  • Avoidance of crowds and poorly ventilated locations 

In recognition of September as Disaster Preparedness Month, we invite you to take your ‘go-bag’ to the next level to make sure you are not just emergency ready, but COVID ready as well. In addition to food, water, sturdy shoes, and a radio (to name just a few), remember to add masks and hand sanitizer to your go-bag so you are prepared for any emergency during the pandemic. When creating or purchasing a First Aid kit, make sure to include a thermometer and antibacterial wipes.  

And don’t forget that communication is key to a successful outcome of any emergency. Sign up to receive emergency alerts and subscribe to our Status Updates to receive the latest information on Marin’s pandemic response.

COVID-19 Testing is Available in Marin 

Testing remains an important tool in our COVID-19 prevention toolkit, whether we are vaccinated or not.   

Why? With COVID-19 testing, people who test positive and have symptoms can get care earlier, likely reducing disease severity.  That person’s contacts can be traced, and quarantine started earlier, reducing the chance of infecting other people.   

If you are not sure if you should be tested, the CDC offers a Coronavirus Self Checker tool which will assist in making decisions on when to seek testing and medical care.  

Contact your primary care physician or visit our Testing Information webpage for information about testing location options including Independent Providers, Health Care Providers, Mail In/At-Home Testing, and testing sites for those without health insurance. Community testing sites offer FREE COVID-19 PCR Testing for Marin County residents. Appointments are strongly encouraged as PCR Testing is currently in high demand. Same day or next day testing appointments are offered through Curative and Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI).
