Viewers' Guide to Emerging Variants 

As new variants of COVID-19 emerge, each gains national attention with efforts to forecast public impact. Dr. Willis provides local context and highlights the factors Marin Public Health focuses on to predict and respond to new strains.

Fall COVID Booster Shot Roll Out Accelerating 

The timeline for availability of the fall COVID-19 booster is accelerating as hospitalization rates remain elevated. On Tuesday, September 12, the CDC will vote to provide final recommendations. FDA authorization is expected before then. Vaccines could begin to travel to local pharmacies and medical providers as early as next week, with the first shots being available locally the following week. Marin Public Health will provide updates on progress. 

Marin COVID Summer Surge Plateauing  

In five of six Marin County wastewater sampling areas, virus levels have remained largely unchanged for the past two weeks after steady increases through July and August. Hospitalization rates have also declined over two weeks. It’s too early to declare an end to the summer surge. Marin COVID Level remains Medium. Marin Public Health urges residents to get the new fall booster when eligible to enhance community safety.
