The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekly and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic response. We remain here for you.

Marin Vaccine Strategy Presented to National Advisory Committee

The Marin County COVID-19 vaccine success has gained the attention of the federal government. The partnerships forged locally are held as a model for building trust and reducing barriers to access to vaccines in our most vulnerable communities.

On September 22, Dr. Willis will be presenting Marin’s vaccine equity strategy to the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) in Washington DC. The presentation will be broadcast live for the public.  Visit NVAC’s website for the meeting agenda and webcast link.

 

California Ends Weekly Testing Requirements for Workers

To better align state COVID-19 guidance with the most current federal recommendations, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is ending COVID-19 policies that required weekly COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated individuals in high-risk workplaces and schools. Health care facilities, other congregate settings and schools will no longer be required to administer weekly COVID-19 testing of unvaccinated and under vaccinated workers. The changes take effect Saturday, September 17, 2022. LEARN MORE.

The state's vaccination and booster requirements for employees in healthcare, correctional health, and adult residential settings remain in effect. In addition, changes to the vaccine-or-test policy regarding state workers will be announced separately by CalHR

 

Know your COVID-19 Community Level

The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in Marin or other community in which you live, work or visit.

  • If you are at high risk of getting very sick, wear a high-quality mask or respirator (e.g., N95) when indoors in public
