COVID-19 Wastewater Surveillance – New Dashboard! 

To measure COVID-19 activity in our community Marin County Public Health uses both case rates and wastewater sampling. When people have COVID-19 infection, the virus is shed through their digestive system into our wastewater. This means that the amount of virus in our wastewater (sewage) generally reflects the level of transmission in our community. This new dashboard shows the average amount of virus (SARs-CoV-2 gene copies per milliliter) in five wastewater collection sites across Marin. At each site, two samples are collected up to three times per week.  Communities were selected based on technical capacity to obtain samples, historical prevalence of COVID-19, and population size. This dashboard, available on our surveillance page, is updated weekly.  

More information about wastewater surveillance and concentrations across the Bay Area can be found on the Covid–WEB (Wastewater Epidemiology for the Bay Area) page

 

Think Positive, Test Negative 

Testing is an essential tool we have available to help combat the spread of COVID-19 in our community. If you are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, don’t hesitate and get tested as soon as possible. This is strongly recommended even if you’re up to date on your vaccinations. It’s an easy step to take, and by finding out if you’re positive, you help others test negative.     

Alternatively, are you a close contact of someone who is COVID positive? Slow the spread by following Isolation and Quarantine guidance and getting a COVID-19 test 5 days after your exposure. Protect the ones you love by taking advantage of the testing options available in Marin County.

COVID-19 Data Update: 

As of February 16, our COVID-19 Status Update changed in frequency and is now published Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays except holidays. Because these updates are no longer published on consecutive days, the last column in each data table now reflects the change from last Status Update, not a change from the previous day. 

Below is just a snapshot of local COVID-19 data. For a more in-depth analysis of COVID-19 trends, please view the Marin Data & Surveillance webpage, review our Data FAQ, or explore the raw data sets on Marin County's Open Data Portal
