Video: COVID-19 Update to the Board of Supervisors  

Earlier today, Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis provided a COVID-19 response update to the Marin County Board of Supervisors. In his talk, he reviewed the current coronavirus and vaccination data, vaccine incentive programs, further reopening of our economy, clarification on face covering usage, and more.




Messages from the Youngsters of Marin City

Two youth groups from St. Andrew Presbyterian Church and First Missionary Baptist in Marin City (part of the Marin City Ministerial Alliance) created a message to encourage youth and young adults to get vaccinated.  The result is an inspiring video about the impact of COVID-19 on them personally. 

Marin County Public Health has been working to connect and partner with faith-based organizations across the county as part of our vaccine outreach effort.  Through those efforts and our Vaccine Community Advisory Board, we’re able to empower groups to help connect with community members to provide COVID-19 education and encouragement around pursuing the vaccine.



What’s the Purpose of a State of Emergency?

With COVID-19 case rates continuing to improve, there is more talk about California’s pandemic-related state of emergency and projections for when it might end. But what is a state of emergency declaration and what does it do?

Such a declaration is a call for resources and establishment of regulations to distribute timely help where it's needed. A governor can declare a state of emergency to supplement local resources, such as for the COVID-19 pandemic. It can also help state and local governments get reimbursed for the money spent responding to the emergency. (See how this applies to California.)

Municipalities can proclaim a local emergency, too. Marin did that in March 2020 for the pandemic and it remains in place as the County applies for state and possibly federal reimbursements for crisis response expenses. The declarations and proclamations of emergency have led to meals for seniors, aid for COVID-affected individuals who are homeless, free COVID-19 testing, and free vaccine doses.

Some state of emergency declarations last longer than the disaster itself. For example, the declaration for the 2018 Camp Fire in Paradise is still active because of ongoing clean-up and rebuilding efforts.


Final Week of Blueprint for a Safer Economy

The Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a statewide plan for reducing COVID-19 and keeping Californians healthy and safe, is entering its final week before being phased out. On June 15, capacity and distancing restrictions will be lifted for most businesses and activities. Large-scale indoor events will have vaccination or negative test requirements for attendees through at least October 1.

Marin County remains in yellow Tier 4, or “minimal risk” of COVID-19 exposure, according to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). See more about the state’s Beyond the Blueprint framework.
