Marin County Public Health Status Update for October 12, 2023 includes Marin County Fall Vaccine Coverage; Students with Symptoms: New School Guidance; Seasonal Respiratory Virus Update; Supporting Victims of Conflict; and COVID-19 Data Update.


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 County Fall Vaccine Coverage  

As of October 12, among approximately 85,000 Marin residents aged 60 and older, only 26% have received the flu vaccine, 16% have received the new COVID vaccine, and 4% the RSV vaccine. With the commercial availability of new vaccines increasing, it will be vital to gain protection as winter virus season approaches. Historically high vaccination coverage in Marin has reduced local hospitalizations and deaths. Find a vaccine near you at Vaccines.gov

Students with Symptoms: New School Guidance  

The California Department of Public Health has issued revised symptom-based guidance for school attendance. The guidance builds off lessons learned in the pandemic in preventing infections and reducing the impact of absenteeism. The guidance closely mirrors existing local practices. Marin Public Health will be working with schools and healthcare providers to align with new state standards.  

Seasonal Respiratory Virus Update  

Flu and RSV levels have bumped in Marin County over the past week and remain at low levels. In prior years, the seasonal jump in transmission of these viruses has been preceded by an interval of low, but measurable activity. This fall’s COVID-19 levels are following last year’s pattern very closely, prior to the November surge.   

Supporting Victims of Conflict  

The Israel-Hamas war is devastating regional healthcare and public health infrastructure. For Marin residents seeking to support victims of the conflict the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is a neutral and autonomous humanitarian organization oriented to protecting health in large scale emergencies.
