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.

Masks Return for Winter 

Marin County Public Health has taken action to protect staff and patients in select clinical settings through the upcoming respiratory virus seasons. From November through March masks will be required in Marin hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. In this video, Dr. Willis describes the order and explains the rationale for taking this step.   

Marin Youth Mental Health Guide: By Youth, For Youth 

Our community has experienced an increase in demand for mental health services during and since the pandemic, especially among youth. Finding services can be a challenge. In response, the Find Your Way Youth Resource Guide was created as a centralized hub for support services, hotlines, and community resources for youth in Marin. The guide is youth led, as a collaboration of Marin Health and Human Services, Office of Education, and Marin 9 to 25.  

COVID-19 Fall Vaccine Distribution Concerns  

COVID-19 vaccine distribution is no longer government-run and has been placed in the conventional commercial healthcare system. Delays in access and lack of coordination is leading to local concerns about the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. To gain insight into the government vaccine roll out, watch the recording of General Gus Perna describing the public-private partnership that saved an estimated 3.2 million lives during this emergency.  

Preventing Rabies in Marin  

One in ten bats tested in Marin County carry rabies. Rabies is a threat to humans and animals, especially domestic cats, who can be infected by bites from wildlife. Cats and dogs in Marin County are required to be vaccinated against rabies. A Marin County ordinance urges vaccination and prompt bite reporting to prevent extended quarantines of pets. Marin Humane offers bat handling caution and removal assistance, and the CDC offers comprehensive rabies information.
