Marin COVID-19 Dashboard Refreshes Population Estimates  

Beginning today, Marin County Public Health will be using updated estimates of our total population in our calculations of case and vaccination rates. This explains slight variations in the results our public might find today versus last week. 

The regular updating of population estimates is routine and necessary to maintain the most accurate data at a community level. The new data is based on Department of Finance data and aligns with the estimates used by the State of California. This will limit discrepancies between state and local reporting of vaccination rates. The primary difference in the updated data set is a shift in Marin County’s estimated age distribution, with more older adults, and a greater number of both African American and LatinX residents than previously estimated.

Holiday Recipe for a Safe Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving is a holiday where many people like to cook something special, whether it be something traditional like turkey or a new recipe found online. As our community prepares for this year’s festivities to give thanks and remember, we want to share with you an important recipe for staying protected against COVID-19. If we all follow the recipe, the end result is a happy and healthy holiday.  

 

The ingredients are simple and not hard to find: 

  • Vaccination 
  • Masks 
  • Hand Soap 
  • Hand Sanitizer 
  • Outdoors 
  • Communication 
  • Safe Travels 
     

Steps:  

Get vaccinated: All people in Marin ages 5 and older can now get a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. 

Wear a mask: Wear a well-fitted mask over your mouth and nose while in public indoor spaces or in outdoor spaces where social distancing isn’t possible.  

Wash your hands: Before eating or serving food.  

Outdoors: Being outdoors is safer than indoors. Opening windows and doors can help create effective ventilation if you are indoors.  

Communication: Communicate ahead of time with guests about your COVID-19 ground rules and precautions you’re taking. If you’re not feeling well, cancel plans or reschedule when you’re feeling better.  

Safe Travels: Delay traveling if you are feeling sick, or until you’re fully vaccinated, if possible. Masks are required on public transportation, including planes and trains.  

 

Vaccination Opportunities in Marin 

Due to high demand, most of the vaccine sites planned for this week are FULL. However, there are open appointments at one remaining clinic:  

Marin City Health & Wellness Center 

  • Tuesday, November 23, 1:00PM to 4:00PM 
  • Vaccines Available: Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Adult Pfizer & Pediatric Pfizer 
  • Appointments are required: schedule online at MyTurn.ca.gov.  

No clinics will take place November 25th - November 28th due to the Thanksgiving Holiday.  

More appointments will be added to our Vaccine Finder webpage starting Monday, November 29. This includes pediatric and booster appointments. Other options to receive your COVID-19 vaccine include:   

  • Your medical provider, doctor or family physician 
  • Retail pharmacies          

We thank our community for the remarkable job it has done at reducing the spread of COVID-19 by getting fully vaccinated. We appreciate you doing your part.   

 

Holiday Schedule for COVID-19 Updates 

Some of our services will pause this week in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Here’s an overview:  

  • Data and Surveillance Webpage: no update on November 25 or 26, updates will resume on November 29.  
  • Marin County COVID-19 Status Update: will pause on Thursday and Friday in recognition of the holiday, but will be back in your inbox on Monday, November 29.  

We wish you a fantastic holiday. We are grateful to everyone doing their part to help keep our community safe.

**  UPDATE, November 22: To better align with State of California data keeping, Marin Public Health shifted from American Community Survey (ACS) population estimates to Department of Finance (DOF) population estimates. Because DOF’s total population estimate is slightly larger than ACS’s estimate, our total vaccination rates dropped slightly.
