 URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE WEST MARIN COVID OUTBREAK PREVENTION TEAM: Since Thanksgiving there has been a significant increase in Marin residents testing positive for COVID-19. This increase in cases is continuing and there is great concern about the current holidays and that we will see a continued increase in cases. Our Healthcare system is at maximum capacity. The primary reason for increase in cases has been documented as private gatherings indoors. Please be vigilant and safe this week as we head into New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day.

Please comply with Stay at Home order: https://covid19.ca.gov/stay-home-except-for-essential-needs/#regional-stay-home-...
Ensure New Years Gatherings are safe. In-person gatherings should be limited to those people you live with.  However, virtual gatherings can include as many households as you’d like!  Additional ideas for alternative gatherings: https://coronavirus.marinhhs.org/safe-holiday-celebration-ideas
