The Marin County Public Health Status Update is published weekly to share news and resources related to pandemic response and recovery, emergency preparedness, and other public health priorities.

Marin COVID Hospitalizations Stable as Cases Rise 

SARS-CoV-2 virus levels in Marin County wastewater have been trending upward since June. Nationally, this trend has been accompanied by increases in hospitalizations. In Marin, however, hospitalization rates have remained unchanged as cases rise, so far. With the highest proportion of residents fully up to date with vaccines in the state, our community is benefiting from the protection vaccines offer against severe illness. Stay tuned for information about the upcoming fall booster.  

Accessing COVID-19 Antigen Tests  

As COVID levels rise, access to antigen tests becomes increasingly important. With the end of the State of Emergency, residents may have questions about how to access tests. Free tests are available through many insurance providers, including MediCal or MediCare. For more testing information, visit Marin County COVID-19 Testing Resources.  

Marin Public Health Shares Lessons Learned  

The Marin County Public Health (MCPH) team recently shared some lessons learned during the pandemic at the National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) annual conference. MCPH prioritizes data-driven strategies to refine our practice of public health, and shares findings with our local community and with public health leaders. The team’s work is routinely updated and available at Marin Public Health Research and Publications

Climate Hazards and Infectious Diseases  

A sweeping study of the relationship between climate change and infectious diseases recently published in Nature research indicates that a significant fraction of known infectious diseases (58%, or 218 out of 375) are impacted by climate. This strengthens the call to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to address the root cause of these changes, while we attempt to adapt and mitigate risk.
