The Marin County COVID-19 status update is three times a week and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We will stay here for you.

Masks remain advisable for travel

Today, a federal judge in Florida annulled the mask mandate for travel with airlines and other public transportation with immediate effect. Several airlines have already indicated that masks will no longer be required on domestic flights.

Marin County Public Health continues to recommend mask use while traveling, especially in crowded indoor environments such as air terminals and gates, and while on a plane when social distancing is not possible. Travelers should be aware that others who travel are now less likely to wear masks, which increases the risk of exposure. Residents at higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease should consider additional measures, such as wearing a well-fitting KN95 mask while traveling.

See GetVaccinatedMarin.org for further recommendations on how to protect yourself and your family.

Your actions saved lives!

Two years into the pandemic, Marin residents continue to escalate and fight COVID-19. The nation’s first shelter-in-place policy was introduced locally on March 17. . Marin was among the 6 jurisdictions across the Bay Area that were the first to take this action. Although there were impacts on our economy, we also know that effective lockdowns prevented infections and saved lives. The past two years have been challenging for all of us. It was not easy, but your actions saved lives.

#KeepItUpCalifornia by wearing your mask in higher risk situations, testing when you have symptoms, and being vaccinated and boosted when you are eligible.

Vaccination options in Marin

If you know someone who still needs a primary vaccination dose or booster shot, please share the list below with them! While Marin County remains one of the highest vaccinated in the state and nation, many eligible residents have not yet received their booster shots. Keeping up to date with our vaccines is just as important as receiving a first series.

Strengthening our immunity to COVID-19 is of utmost importance, especially with the continued presence of coronavirus, including the Omicron variant, in our society. Fortunately, we have access to vaccines, which are a FREE and effective resource to keep us protected.

Upcoming vaccination clinics this week with open appointments:

  • Margaret Todd Senior Center
    (In Hill Community Room)
    Novato – April 20th

  • San Geronimo Commons
    San Geronimo – April 21st

  • Marine community clinics

  • Kerner clinic

Walk-ups are welcome at most vaccination providers throughout the county. Visit Vaccine finder website to see available clinics and schedule an appointment. Remember that vaccine recipients between the ages of 5 and 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive a vaccination.

If you cannot find a COVID-19 vaccination clinic open at a time that suits your schedule, more options are available by visiting the California Department of Public Health’s My turn Website for planning vaccinations against COVID and influenza.

We are grateful to everyone in our community who has done their part by being fully vaccinated and boosted when they are eligible.
