The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you.  

Planning to Travel? Be COVID Aware 

According to the CDC, COVID-19 cases have increased over 300% nationally from June 19 to July 23, along with parallel increases in hospitalizations and deaths driven by the highly transmissible Delta variant.  While Marin County is one of the most highly vaccinated counties in the United states, disparities in vaccination coverage persist across different population groups and geographic areas.  

When traveling, take into consideration the COVID-19 activity and vaccination rates in the area of your destination. Use the CDC’s COVID Data Tracker to explore the current 7-day case rates for all U.S. counties, or compare the vaccination rates of each state.  In areas with substantial and high transmission, CDC recommends that everyone – both unvaccinated and fully vaccinated individuals–wear a mask in public indoor settings to help prevent the spread of the Delta variant and protect others. 

If your travel plans are flexible, CDC also recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated, as the COVID-19 vaccine can provide an additional layer of COVID-19 prevention.  If you must travel and you are unvaccinated, CDC recommends getting tested with a PCR viral test 1-3 days before your trip, wearing a mask as much as possible and remembering good hand hygiene; and then getting tested with a PCR viral test 3-5 days after travel and stay home and quarantine a full 7 days after travel.  If you are traveling with children who cannot get vaccinated at this time, follow recommendations for unvaccinated people and choose safer travel options. 

State, local, and territorial governments may have travel restrictions in place, including testing requirements, stay-at-home orders, and quarantine requirements upon arrival. For up-to-date information and travel guidance, check the state or territorial and local health department where you are, along your route, and where you are going. Prepare to be flexible during your trip as restrictions and policies may change during your travel.

Testing is Available! 

Testing remains an important tool in our COVID-19 prevention toolkit, whether we are vaccinated or not.   

Why? With COVID-19 testing, people who test positive and have symptoms can get care earlier, likely reducing disease severity.  That person’s contacts can be traced, and quarantine started earlier, reducing the chance of infecting other people.     

If you are not sure if you should be tested, the CDC offers a Coronavirus Self Checker tool which will assist in making decisions on when to seek testing and medical care.   

Visit our Testing Information webpage for a list of testing options in Marin County or contact your primary care physician. Community testing sites are available to Marin residents at no cost. Appointments are strongly encouraged as PCR Testing is currently in high demand. Same day or next day testing appointments are offered through Curative and Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI).
