Omicron Variant Update for Marin 

The situation is changing rapidly as Omicron is becoming a dominant strain of COVID-19 in the United States. Marin County Public Health is committed to keep you updated on the changing status of COVID-19 cases in Marin.  Here, Dr. Willis discusses vaccination rates and how that can help us build our resistance against this variant of concern.

Receiving Family for the Holidays?  

‘Tis the season to celebrate the winter holidays, to enjoy a break from work or school, and to revel with loved ones. Sometimes we travel to visit family but on other occasions they come to us, and we play the role of host. Receiving family requires a great deal of planning and as we continue to navigate through the pandemic, this responsibility requires additional precautions. We not only want our guests to have a good time, but we want everyone involved in the festivities to stay safe against COVID-19.  

Here is guidance for family or friends visiting from other countries, out of state or returning college students, regardless of vaccination status.  

Before arrival: 

  • Ask everyone to take a COVID-19 test before traveling. 
  • Make sure all eligible family members are fully vaccinated or boosted. 
  • Organize a smaller gathering with only close family if possible. 
  • If possible, have all guests take a rapid antigen test immediately before the gathering begins. Anyone who tests positive should isolate from the rest of the group. 

During festivities: 

  • Wear a mask if not everyone is fully vaccinated. 
  • Wash hands frequently – especially when handling food or drinks.  
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms. 
  • Quarantine and get tested if symptoms occur. 
  • Consider gathering outside. 
  • Exercise extra caution around: elderly members of family, immunocompromised individuals, young children, and unvaccinated people. 

After the holidays: 

  • Take a COVID-19 test 3-5 days after gathering. 
  • Self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days. 

Remember to stock up on: Hand sanitizer, extra masks, tissues, and self-test kits. 

More information about traveling and staying safe during the holidays can be found on our Travel Page and Celebrate Safely Page. Download and print our Receiving International Travelers Tip Sheet. 

 

Need Help Finding an Open Vaccination Appointment? 

Boosters continue to be in high demand, but multiple options are available to make an appointment. Pharmacies and your local health care provider remain good options to receive your COVID-19 vaccination, and some pharmacies continue to offer walk-ups on a first come, first served basis as supplies allow. 

Marin Public Health has also continued to revise the vaccine finder tool to make the process of finding an open appointment easier for you. There are filters which can show if a clinic accepts drop-ins, look for a specific vaccine brand, narrow the results to a particular eligible age range, or show only clinics with available appointments. We’ve even posted vaccine finder tutorials, located at the top of the page, in both English and Spanish to walk you through the process! 
 

Holiday Schedule for COVID-19 Updates 

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

  • Marin County COVID-19 Status Update: will pause on Friday in recognition of the holiday, but will be back in your inbox on Monday, December 27.   

  • Vaccine Data and Surveillance Data reports: no update on December 24, updates will resume on December 27. Snapshot data on homepage (Coronavirus.MarinHHS.org) will continue to update throughout weekend.  

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