Post-Holiday Testing Reminder 

As we recover from the revelry of the fall season’s festivities like Thanksgiving last week and Hanukkah, which ends on December 6, it’s important to prioritize self-care after each event. If you celebrated with family or friends, then remember to get a COVID-19 test at least 3 to 5 days after the gathering. If you are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, get tested as quickly as possible. Testing is an effective and easily accessible resource we have at our disposal that not only offers peace of mind but also keeps us safe.  

Visit our Testing Page to discover free community COVID-19 testing locations in Marin County or contact your healthcare provider to make an appointment.  

People with busy schedules may benefit from a self-test which can be found at most local pharmacies. Self-tests are convenient because they can be completed at your convenience at home. It’s important to report the results of your self-test, especially if it’s positive. This 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 to report self-test results so these 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, date, brand, basic demographic factors, and contact information. Public Health has privacy and security measures in place to safeguard personally identifiable information. 

Thank you for doing your part by getting tested! 

 

Public Health Shares Vaccine Lessons 

Before the pandemic, Marin County had the lowest vaccination rates in California. Now, more than 90 percent of its adults are protected against COVID-19.  This success comes due in part to collaboration with numerous non-profits, hospitals, schools and other partners to reach populations that might lack the resources to arrange vaccinations easily for themselves.  

This approach, as well as an overview of Marin’s evolution as a vaccination leader is highlighted in a recent issue of Governing.com.  Governing is a publication to help public leaders successfully navigate emerging challenges and dynamics by sharing best practices of local and state governments.
