The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekly and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic response. We remain here for you.
Influenza on the Rise
A rise in flu cases is compounding an ongoing surge in RSV cases, straining the regional health care system. Flu virus levels in Marin County wastewater have jumped 23-fold in the past month. Today, Santa Clara announced an individual under age 65 who was unvaccinated against flu is their first influenza death this season. Flu is vaccine preventable, and most clinics are offering both flu and COVID vaccine at the same time.
Shared Risk, Shared Gratitude
Throughout the pandemic, we’ve relied on the actions of others for our health and safety. Because we share the same air, the decisions of those around us to vaccinate, mask, test, and take other steps determines our risk as individuals. So, as members of a community with comparatively low pandemic cases, hospitalizations and deaths, Marin residents can share gratitude with one another for doing their part to protect us all.

Know your COVID-19 Community Level
The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in Marin or other community in which you live, work or visit.
