New COVID-19 Case Geography Dashboards Available

Curious about COVID-19 case trends in your local city, town or zip code? There’s a new dashboard for that!

Marin Public Health has released a new dashboard to the COVID-19 Data and Surveillance page that complements the existing COVID-19 Cases by Geography map. The current map, which shows the cumulative case count/rate and 30-day case count/rate for census level data in Marin County, will not change. The new dashboard was developed to show summary totals and trends in cases overtime by different types of geographies in Marin County. Users can select whether they want to view cases by City/Town/Community, Census Tract, or Zip Code and then select the specific area they want to view. You can view new confirmed case count by day, cases in the past 14 days, 14-day case rate, cumulative case count, and cumulative case rate.

 

State Updates Guidance for Youth and Recreational Adult Sports

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today released updated guidance for youth and recreational adult sports. The guidance applies to all organized youth and adult sports, including school and community-sponsored programs, and privately organized clubs and leagues. CDPH's guidance is aimed at giving communities guidelines on how to safely remain physically active while reducing transmission in their communities. Under the updated guidance, outdoor high-contact and moderate-contact sport competitions may resume in the Red (Substantial) tier and the Purple (Widespread) tier, with modifications, including testing requirements for certain outdoor high contact sports.

Under the updated guidance, outdoor high-contact sports can be played in counties in the Purple or Red tier with a case rate at or below 14 per 100,000. Weekly testing will be required for football, rugby and water polo participants age 13 and over in counties with a case rate between 7 and 14 per 100,000. Weekly testing, either antigen or PCR, is required for all participants and coaches in these sports, with results made available within 24 hours of competition. Football, rugby and water polo are high-contact sports that are likely to be played unmasked, with close, face-to-face contact exceeding 15 minutes.

Outdoor moderate-contact sports, such as baseball, cheerleading and softball, can be played in these counties without the testing requirement.

Due to the nature and risk of transmission while participating in these sports, teams must provide information regarding risk to all parents/guardians of minors participating, and each parent shall sign an informed consent indicating their understanding and acknowledgement of the risks.

Any teams playing in a less restrictive sports tier are strongly encouraged to follow the steps outlined in the guidance to reduce risk of COVID-19 transmission. This includes wearing face coverings, practicing physical distancing, and appropriate hand hygiene and equipment sanitation.

Youth and adult sports include varied activities that have different levels of risk for transmission of COVID-19 depending on the physical contact between players. Outdoor activities that allow for consistent wearing of face coverings and physical distancing are lower risk than indoor activities that involve close contact between participants and high exertion that increases spread of exhaled particles.

For more information on examples of sports with different levels of contact and risk by tier view the updated guidance.
