New Year Message from the Public Health Officer

How does Dr. Matt Willis sum-up 2020 in one word? What was his most challenging aspect of the past year? And, what do some words from Bruce Springsteen have to do with our COVID-19 response?  For answers to those questions and more, watch this video:

 

 

RECAP: Community Conversation with Schools Community

Earlier today, Dr. Matt Willis and Dr. Lisa Santora joined Marin Superintendent of Schools, Mary Jane Burke, for a virtual town hall discussion about the status of schools reopening to site-based instruction and COVID-19 data trends tied to classrooms. In addition, Dr. Santora reviewed Marin County’s effective mitigation strategies and the new “California Safe Schools for All” plan.

 

 

Data Map Updated to Show Cases by Census Tract

Today, our epidemiology team unveiled an updated version of the “Confirmed COVID-19 Cases by City and Community” map that can be found on the data & surveillance webpage. The new view provides a more granular view of case trends versus grouping the data by city or zip code.  Most of Marin County’s data is now shown by census tract and has been updated to correspond to 2019 American Community Survey population estimates. However, because West Marin census tracts are so large, West Marin data is defined into regions that combine adjacent geographies where the cumulative total population for that area is greater than 1,000.  

For compliance with confidentiality standards, case information is only shared for geographies with greater than 1,000 population and more than 10 cases cumulatively, after which day-to-day increases are permitted to be shared even if the daily increases are fewer than 10 cases. For all regions, both the cumulative and 30-day case counts are shown.  Data for each jurisdiction can be accessed by clicking on an individual region or clicking on the downward arrow at the base of the map.
