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.


Closing the Paxlovid “Treatment Gap”

Dr. Willis explains why more residents should be receiving Paxlovid for COVID-19, especially those over age 50.

There are several ways to get outpatient COVID-19 treatments:

  • Your doctor can write a prescription. If you test positive, talk to your health care provider to determine if you should be offered a prescription for treatment. Bring a list of all medications you are taking.
  • You can use a Test to Treat program. If you don't have a healthcare provider, you can be prescribed a treatment regimen from a Test-to-Treat location that offers COVID-19 testing and treatment to take home.
  • You can contact a telehealth provider. If a telehealth provider determines that you should receive prescription medication for COVID-19 treatment, they can send a prescription to your local pharmacy or help you get a prescription filled through the mail. Find out how to connect with a provider.

Your health care provider might recommend medication that does not require a prescription to relieve symptoms and support your body's natural defenses. The CDC has information on over-the-counter treatments.


Northgate Clinic Expands Hours, Offers Walk-Ins

Our Northgate Mall vaccine clinic – offered in partnership with Safeway Pharmacies – has added expanded its weekly schedule!

NEW Schedule: Tuesday – Friday, 12:00pm to 6:00PM

While advance appointments are still recommended, we’ve also added more walk-in slots (first come, first served) to accommodate those who may be unable to access the online appointment system.  

Remember, the updated Omicron booster is available for everyone age 12 & older who completed their vaccine series or received their last booster dose more than 2 months ago.  If you have not received your updated booster yet, now is the time – before the holiday rush! Flu shots are available, too!

Visit the Vaccine Finder webpage to view other clinic hours, address, or schedule an appointment. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive a vaccination. Additional vaccination clinics in Marin and around the Bay Area can be found on MyTurn.


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.
