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.  
 

Need a Lyft to get Vaccinated? 

Do you have an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine but don’t have access to transportation or need assistance arriving to or returning from a clinic? Ride share companies are offering support for members of our community who want to get vaccinated but have transportation as a barrier.  

Lyft is offering expanded services to help people who need to get to vaccine appointments, including free or discounted rides. If you know someone who needs assistance, you can now pay for their ride in a feature called “send a ride.” They have also launched a program called “fund a ride” which allows individual to pay for a ride via various nonprofit partners.  

Learn more about Lyft’s vaccine access program. 

Uber and the White House have collaborated with GoGoGrandparent to help clients get free rides to and from vaccine clinics. The process for making a reservation is simple: Provide rider information on GoGoGrandParent’s homepage, contact information for the passenger, and a pick-up location. There is also a form for additional information to help the driver accommodate any special needs the rider may have.  

 

Testing Tuesday: When to Get Tested for COVID-19 

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, we urge you to get tested as soon as possible, even if you are fully vaccinated. 

Common symptoms consistent with COVID-19 are:  

  • Fever 
  • Chills 
  • Cough 
  • Congestion 
  • Sore throat 
  • Difficulty breathing 
  • Headache 
  • Fatigue 
  • Vomiting 
  • Diarrhea 
  • New loss of taste or smell.  

If you are unvaccinated or 2 weeks have not passed since your final dose, you should get tested for COVID-19 if you: 

  • Have a known exposure to someone who has COVID-19, even if you have no symptoms. Marin Public Health will contact you if someone who has COVID-19 tells them they were in close contact with you. 
  • Have taken part in activities that put you at higher risk for COVID-19, such as travel, attending large gatherings, or being in crowded indoor settings. 
  • Work in a high-risk setting, such as a hospital or medical clinic, long-term care facility, homeless shelter or prison. 
  • Work in an occupation where you experience frequent contact with the public on a daily basis, including jobs as first responders, teachers, personal caregivers, housekeepers, construction workers, food service / restaurant workers, gas station and grocery store workers. 
  • Are required by your employer to have routine testing. 

If you do not meet this criteria but believe you need testing -- or need testing for travel or medical-related procedures -- please consult your insurance provider, medical provider or neighborhood medical clinic. 

To find a testing site near you, visit our testing page under the ‘Where to Get Tested’ section.
