Marin A Focus In Conversation on Hospitalization Rates

Marin’s decision to focus more on hospitalization rates than case rates in ongoing pandemic response is contributing to the necessary national dialogue.  Marin was highlighted in recent Time Magazine and New York Times editorials calling on other public health jurisdictions to make the same shift.

 

California First State to Require Boosters for Healthcare Workers

Yesterday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced new COVID-19 booster requirement for health care workers that will mitigate potential staffing shortages while helping to safeguard the state’s hospital capacity and protect the health and safety of Californians. By February 1, 2022, health care workers and all employees in high-risk congregate settings, including nursing homes, will be required to get their booster. In the interim, all health care staff that have not received their booster must test for COVID-19 twice weekly until they are up to date on their vaccines.

In addition, Governor Newsom shared two additional actions to protect local communities:

  • Expanding testing access for students. To keep California’s kids safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our schools, California will provide 1-2 rapid tests for every K-12 public school student as kids head back to school from winter break.
  • Expanding testing site hours. To ensure every Californian has access to testing, the state will expand testing site hours for state-operated centers that have reached capacity.

For more information, read the Governor’s news release or watch the press conference:
