Celebrating Safely is a Great Holiday Gift    

 

Public health officials are urging residents to celebrate the holidays safely as COVID-19 case rates rise in Marin County and across the Bay Area region. To help residents prepare, Marin’s Celebrate Safely webpage has received an update. 

Health officials cite several factors that contribute to increased virus transmission. Cooler weather brings gatherings indoors, and families and friends travel to holiday celebrations. At the same time, immunity from the vaccine is waning for those who were vaccinated more than six months ago. 

In Marin, an early and aggressive vaccination campaign meant most residents were vaccinated before May, so most are now eligible for boosters. 

“It’s a concerning combination of factors,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County Public Health Officer. “The holidays bring more opportunities for transmission, and at the same time the protection of the first series of vaccine starts to wane.”  

Marin County Public Health is strongly suggesting that COVID-19 precautions continue to be in place for holiday gatherings this season. Two new recommendations for this year include limiting indoor gatherings to those who are fully vaccinated, and performing rapid antigen testing for all participants on the day of the event.

Travel Checklist for the Holiday Season 

 

The week of Thanksgiving often signifies a time when people prepare to visit friends, return home to see family, or get out of town to enjoy some extra days off from work or school. The plans from person to person may be unique, but they all involve some form of travel. When we go on vacation or receive guests there exists an increased risk of COVID-19 transmission. Here is a COVID-19 prevention checklist for those who plan to return to or leave Marin County during the holidays. By following these guidelines, we can have a safe travel experience.
