Measles 

Measles activity continues in the U.S.  The CDC issued an advisory urging parents to make sure kids are up to date on the measles vaccine before foreign travel.  Since it is a required vaccine, Marin has high measles vaccination rates among school-aged children.  Parents of younger, pre-school children should review their immunization records before international travel.  

Maternal Mental Health 

California’s Surgeon General, Dr. Diana Ramos will be coming to Marin on Thursday May 2nd to give a keynote address at First 5’s Marin Communications Forum. The talk will focus on all aspects of Maternal Mental Health from Adverse Childhood Experiences, to pregnancy, to post-partum. For more information and to register, visit the facebook event page

Long Term Care Settings Outbreak Free  

For the first time in 4 years, there are no reported outbreaks of communicable diseases among Marin County’s long-term care facilities.  This is due to waning seasonal respiratory viruses and improvements in infection control practices. In 2020, Public Health formed a new team dedicated to outbreak prevention and infection control (OPIC). In 2023, the OPIC team provided 84 visits to long-term care settings to provide on-site training and support. The team has prioritized efforts to increase facility vaccination rates for residents and staff.
