Preparedness counts. Are you ready for Winter Celebrations? 

The first fall rains in Marin County usually mark the end of fire season and the beginning of the holidays. While the tail end of 2020’s devastating fire season is most welcome, many are apprehensive about how the coming holiday celebrations will look. 

When planning your holiday celebrations, think “safety first”. To protect your loved ones, our community, and our healthcare workers, keep these tips in mind: 

  • Keep it SMALL. Private gatherings are permitted up to three households. The smaller the gathering, the safer it is for everyone especially those more vulnerable to severe disease from COVID-19. 

  • Keep it SHORT. The longer the duration, the higher the risk of transmission. Gatherings should be two hours or less.

  • Keep it OUTDOORS. Are you “winter ready”? Temperatures are dropping. Is it time to add another layer (literally) of protection against the cold? When visiting with others outdoors, it’s especially important to keep your head, feet and hands warm. 

  • Keep it CLEAN. Remember to wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, or with hand sanitizer when washing is not an option, especially after coming into contact with frequently touched surfaces. 

  • Keep it SAFE. The best way to protect yourself and those you care about this holiday season is to practice safe social distancing. Remember to stay at least 6 feet apart and wear a face covering while not actively eating or drinking.

* The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published Monday – Friday. Monday editions of the status update include data from Monday plus Saturday and Sunday of the previous weekend. Therefore, data shown under the “change from last update” heading will always be larger on Mondays and differ from what is published on the Coronavirus in Marin homepage, which is updated 7 days per week.  

** Note that the testing number increased by 9,903 because GoHealth reported a large number of labs from earlier test dates into CalREDIE at once.
