Coronavirus (COVID-19)

MarinHealth is committed to fostering the health and wellbeing of the North Bay, and we are working diligently to provide accurate, clear information for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vaccine Distribution

Eligible Marin County Residents are able to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine through the County of Marin. This is a very fluid situation, and the best way to know when and where appointments are available is to keep visiting the County site, which is updated regularly. As doses are delivered, the county opens additional appointments. Typically, appointments are posted on Fridays. If doses are available, you will see buttons towards the bottom of the page showing dates and times for eligible residents to choose from. If no appointments are available, the site will indicate that. You can also determine if you are eligible to receive the vaccine in a nearby county through myturn.ca.gov.

If you are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine, you can still register your interest with the county by filling out their Interest Form. This will ensure that you are contacted when you become eligible and vaccines are available.

COVID-19 Testing

With a few exceptions, we offer COVID-19 diagnostic tests to patients with symptoms. These are mostly adult patients who meet specific criteria (see below) and have been referred by one of our providers for drive-through testing or an appointment at one of our Medical Network Clinics (including the Adult Acute Care Clinic).

We also test patients who arrive at MarinHealth Medical Center’s Emergency Department and meet the criteria.

Testing is done routinely on asymptomatic patients scheduled for procedures or surgery at a MarinHealth facility, as part of pre-admission preparation. And all patients who are hospitalized at MarinHealth Medical Center are tested, even if they do not display COVID-19 symptoms. To learn more about testing in Marin we encourage you to read the COVID-19 Testing Information on the Marin County Public Health website.


Medical Care During the Pandemic

Don’t delay getting care for chronic or new medical issues during the pandemic. Thanks to stringent safety protocols and procedures, you can rest assured that it’s safe to see your doctor or seek care at the Medical Center. Learn more about visiting restrictions, adjustments to hours of operation, updates on surgeries, procedures, and exams at MarinHealth Medical Center. Learn more about pandemic updates in our MarinHealth Medical Network clinics.

Throughout MarinHealth, we are open and available for appointments by telehealth (video) and in-person if needed, with rigorous safety precautions.
