COVID-19 Status Update for 11/20/2020

The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you.

Marin Holding Steady in Red Tier 2

While most counties in the region are seeing rapid acceleration in COVID-19 cases, Marin County case rates are holding relatively steady in red tier 2 as Thanksgiving week approaches. “We’re watching the numbers closely every day and encouraged to see some stability in our rates this week”. says Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis. “Looking at what’s happening elsewhere, we’re concerned the regional surge will impact Marin. No county is an island, but so far we’re well shy of the purple level. I’m hopeful that this means we’re doing something right as a community. We’re at a critical juncture, and this could change very quickly. We all need to do our part to hang onto what we’ve achieved." If case rates increase significantly in Marin, the county would move in the purple tier and the State’s curfew, announced yesterday and effective November 21 through December 21, would become mandatory.

Marin County is holding steady in red tier 2 as Thanksgiving week approaches.

Public Health Officials Remind Residents to Get Flu Shots Before the Holidays

Health officials from across the Bay Area are asking the public to fight the flu by getting the annual vaccination for influenza before the holidays. Each winter, people sick with flu crowd hospitals and urgent care clinics -- resources that may already be strained due to COVID-19. Early and timely flu shots can prevent a disease that hospitalizes 200,000 Americans every year.

To keep yourself and your family out of the hospital, doctors recommend an annual flu shot for everyone age 6 months or older. The flu shot is a safe, effective way to reduce your chance of missing work or ending up in the hospital due to severe flu. Symptoms of the flu can be similar to early symptoms of COVID-19, meaning that this year, people with flu symptoms may require a COVID-19 test and may need to stay home from work and isolate away from their families while awaiting results.

For those with medical insurance, flu shots are free as a preventive service at doctor’s offices and most retail pharmacies. Those without health insurance can obtain free or low-cost flu shots through local community clinics. Find more locations near you that offer flu vaccine using the Vaccine Finder.
