COVID-19 Update 

Marin County is experiencing a summer surge in COVID-19 transmission. Based on wastewater levels, Marin Public Health estimates that the rate of infection is higher now than at any point in the past three months. While our Marin COVID level remains at “Medium” this week, further increases could shift levels to “High”. Paxlovid remains the treatment of choice for residents at risk for serious COVID-19 illness. Community immunity and effective treatment are keeping hospitalization rates stable. 

Making a Healthy Fair  

The Marin County Fair, scheduled for July 3-7, is the County's premier community event with over 120,000 attendees annually. Every year, Marin Public Health works with fair organizers and healthcare sponsors to create a healthy fair experience. The fair has been recognized by the Western States Fair Association as “the healthiest fair in the West”.  The fair features quiet zones, a baby sanctuary, healthy food items, hydration stations, and measures to prevent unhealthy alcohol use. In addition, Public Health offers a designated area with lots of games, health tips and distribution of Naloxone - a simple nasal spray that reverses an opioid overdose and saves lives. This year, special H5N1 bird flu safety precautions are being taken with animal exhibits and the petting zoo.  

Examining Our Practice and Sharing What We Learn   

Marin Public Health is committed to studying our public health practice and sharing what we learn with the wider scientific community through publications and presentations.  This accelerates progress both within and outside of Marin. Those who are interested can view a selection of this work on the Research and Publications tab on our website. Recent analyses examine vulnerability to sea level rise, e-bike safety, and wastewater monitoring for tracking virus levels.
