Reduce Your Risk: Protecting the Unvaccinated  

Marin County boasts one of the most impressive COVID-19 vaccination rates in the nation (78% of the population is fully vaccinated). Between residents who can’t receive a vaccine yet (children less than 12 years old), those who haven’t completed a vaccine series, and those who remain hesitant to get vaccinated, there still exists a large number of people with a greater risk of contracting COVID-19. There are ways we can protect members of our community (such as a family member or close contact) who are more vulnerable to infection.  

  • Get vaccinated: Vaccines are highly effective at reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection and reducing the potential of the virus spreading within our community. We strongly advise all eligible residents to be vaccinated in order to protect unvaccinated members of their household.  

  • Wear a mask: Mask use is required in indoor public settings and strongly recommended for outdoor gatherings where social distancing is not easily achievable. At gatherings where the vaccination status of all attendees is unknown, parents of unvaccinated children should have their kids wear masks. Parents can set an example by donning a mask as well. 

  • Practice safe hygiene habits: Washing hands properly, using alcohol-based sanitizers, disinfecting high touch surfaces, and refraining from touching the eyes or mouth with hands are all prevention best practices that can be instilled at home. Showing our children how to do these activities instills a solid foundation for staying safe.  

  • Inform and offer support: Helping our unvaccinated children understand the risk of COVID-19, the importance of staying safe, and offering support for them goes a long way. The CDC offers resources for how to talk to your child about the pandemic. 

  • Choose COVID-safe activities: Parents of unvaccinated children should consider outdoor playdates and open air activities whenever possible. If you’re making plans with friends who are unvaccinated, a similar strategy is recommended: Open-air where social distancing is possible. Avoid events with large crowds or participate only in gatherings with people who are vaccinated. Plan ahead and be aware of the risk level before going on trips.   

  • Stay home and get tested if you experience symptoms: If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms get tested and self-quarantine until you receive your test results. Getting tested not only makes sense, but it also is the responsible action to take if you are in close contact with those who are unvaccinated or have greater vulnerability to exposure. If you experience symptoms or test positive for COVID-19, informing those who you were in contact with is essential.
