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.  

 

Self-Test Reporting Holiday Reminder 

During this time of year, we like to give thanks and recognize what makes us grateful. One thing we are thankful for is the easy accessibility of over-the-counter COVID-19 self-tests. They are helpful when there isn’t time to visit a community testing clinic and can be found at most local pharmacies. We strongly urge our community to take extra precautions during the holidays by getting tested for COVID-19. This not only keeps us safe, but also protects members of our most vulnerable populations. 

If you plan on celebrating with family or friends, Marin County Public Health recommends self-testing rapid antigen testing on the day of the gathering before the event. It’s also important to report your test results, especially if they were positive. Reporting results connects people who test positive for COVID-19 to supportive resources, assists with contact tracing efforts to limit community spread, and offers information on COVID-19 activity in Marin. 

Marin County Public Health has created an online form so results from those tests can be recorded along with all other tests conducted at laboratories. 

The brief online form collects information about the test result, reason for the test, the date, the brand, basic demographic factors, and contact information. Public Health has privacy and security measures in place to safeguard personally identifiable information.

Pediatric Second Dose Appointments  

Currently 51% of Marin County 5 – 11-year-olds have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine – or approximately 9,000 children. This is the highest rate in the state of California.  Thank you for partnering with us to protect our children against COVID-19. 

If your child was among this group, they should have an appointment scheduled for their 2nd dose at the same vaccine clinic location 3 – 4 weeks after their first dose. The back of the vaccine card has the date you should return for a 2nd dose. If your child does not have a 2nd dose appointment, please schedule one at any vaccine clinic location. 2nd dose appointments must be 20 days or later after the first dose. Visit https://myturn.ca.gov/ to make a 2nd dose appointment.    

Because of extremely high demand for vaccination appointments, you may not be able to find an appointment right away.  Rest assured, more appointments are opening each week.  When browsing MyTurn, be sure to select the clinics with dark blue buttons that say “schedule appointment.” We have received reports that the white buttons that say “see availabilty” do not always result in appointments.  

 

It’s Testing Tuesday: An Overview of Testing Opportunities in Marin County

Because DOF’s total population estimate is slightly larger than ACS’s estimate, our total vaccination rates dropped slightly.
