Celebrate Safely: New Year’s Edition Part II 

Ways for us to begin 2022 on a positive note are to stay healthy and avoid getting sick with COVID-19. As New Year’s Eve approaches, Marin County is experiencing a surging COVID-19 case rate. What’s more, the number of active COVID-19 cases is much higher now than it was at the start of the holiday season. These factors mean that the threat of COVID-19 will be greater at New Year’s Eve parties than during previous holiday celebrations.  

Marin County Public Health has a few recommendations for everyone who is planning to celebrate the New Year: 

  • Reconsider plans if attending traditional New Year’s gatherings. 
  • Avoid Indoor gatherings where there is no social distancing and mingling over hours. These are high risk for COVID-19 spread, especially if the vaccine status of guests is unknown. 
  • Limit celebration to small groups of family or friends with known vaccine status.  
  • Consider a virtual celebration rather than in person.  
  • Older adults who are at higher risk of COVID-19 infection should exercise increased caution.   
  • Choose well-ventilated spaces and shorten the duration of gathering. 

Read yesterday’s Status Update for additional tips for staying safe during New Year’s Eve. Visit our Celebrate Safely page for more guidance about protecting yourself during gatherings.  

 

Testing Tuesday 

Testing remains one of the most important tools in our COVID-19 prevention toolkit, especially as we move indoors during colder weather and celebrate the holidays. Getting tested before and after travel and holiday gatherings helps identify the virus and limit its ability to spread in our community. This is an important step we can all take to protect each other and keep our loved ones safe.  

If you’re symptomatic, get tested as soon as possible, even if you’re fully vaccinated.
