Visit our Surveillance webpage to view interactive graphs for confirmed COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths. Data analysis is available by age range, gender and geographic region. In addition, you can track the total number of local hospital visits due to respiratory illness -like activity, which provides situational awareness and could be an early indicator of potential hospital surge in Marin.
Testing capacity expanded in Marin County
A key component of Marin Public Health’s surveillance program is tracking confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Marin County. Testing makes that possible. Testing is available by physician referral for individuals who are experiencing symptoms, whether mild or severe. Our local testing capacity is increasing as designated urgent care centers are now supporting testing.
