Peer-to-Peer Communication: Partnering to Reach Marin’s Youth

The County of Marin is working with a team of high school and college interns to help connect with Marin youth and young adults to share important messages about COVID-19 prevention, mental health resources, flu season, voter registration, the census and more.  We have seen COVID-19 rates increase among teens and young adults as well as mental health concerns associated with sheltering in place, online learning and isolation.

The team of interns is creating and publishing original content in English and Spanish on Instagram as @MarinCountyGov. In addition to colorful graphics, each post includes links for more information. If any young adults in your household are Instagram users, encourage them to visit the account to learn more.

 

 

Talking to Kids about COVID-19 Safety with help from Sesame Street

The next round of COVID-19 themed PSAs from Sesame Street are now available! As part of Sesame Workshop’s #CaringForEachOther initiative to support families during the COVID-19 pandemic, the three new English- and Spanish-language PSAs feature the lovable Sesame Street Muppets promoting best practices for kids and families during the pandemic, including how to properly wear a mask, physically distance, wash hands, and navigate the hybrid learning environment many California kids are experiencing this Fall.

 

 

COVID-19 Pandemic: Marin Responds

Our world has changed fundamentally since the shelter in place order of mid-March 2020. The order, like the COVID-19 pandemic, was unprecedented and impacted our community, our economy and our lives. It has also done exactly what it was intended to do – saved lives and reduced the COVID-19 burden in Marin. After six months of concentrated effort responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important take a step back and see what has been done so we can better plan for the road ahead. Below are just a few highlights of the things that have been done to address the pandemic:
