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.

Virus Surge Impacting Local Hospitals

Throughout this week, emergency departments in all three Marin County hospitals have been functioning at near maximum capacity. Upward trends in flu, COVID-19 and RSV do not show signs of abating. For the first time, more residents are hospitalized for flu than COVID-19 county-wide. Vaccines and boosters have been proven to cut the risk of being hospitalized. Community members can visit the Vaccine Finder online to identify a drop-in site or to schedule an appointment.


Winter Surge Advisory Issued

Due to high levels of virus transmission, Marin County Public Health is advising vaccines, masking, treatment, safe visitation, and enhanced screenings at health care providers and long-term care facilities.


Health Officials Strongly Recommend Masking Indoors

Masking is effective at slowing the spread of all respiratory viruses. Protect yourself and others, especially those with compromised immune systems, by wearing high-quality masks like KN95, KF94 or N95. Refresh your knowledge on masks by visiting
