Marin County COVID-19 Status Update: November 10, 2022 

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. 

Gathering Safely 

Dr. Willis describes how he and his family will be approaching safe holiday gatherings this season, with COVID, flu and RSV circulating. 

Update on Flu and RSV 

The most recent Marin County wastewater samples show that circulation of RSV and influenzas virus is increasing cross Marin. Flu virus levels seem to be rising more rapidly in Novato, and RSV levels are rising more quickly in Southern Marin. The CDC is reporting the earliest spike in flu cases nationally in 13 years. For those who may have been waiting further into flu season to obtain the protection of the flu shot, the national and local data signal that now is the time. To find a flu shot, and to follow RSV and flu virus levels in Marin visit flu.marinhhs.org

What is RSV? 

RSV has been making national headlines recently.  What is it?  RSV or Respiratory Syncytial Virus is a common respiratory virus that typically causes mild, cold-like symptoms.  Most people recover within a week or two, but RSV can be serious requiring hospitalization especially in infants and young children.  Symptoms include runny nose, decreased appetite, and a cough, which may progress to wheezing or difficulty breathing.  Like the flu, RSV season starts late fall and peaks in winter.  There is no vaccine for RSV, but you can help stop the spread of infections by: 

  • Washing your hands often 
  • Covering your coughs and sneezes 
  • Staying home when you are sick

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.
