Blueprint Update: Marin Remains in Orange Tier 3

Today, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) provided another update on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a statewide plan for reducing COVID-19 and keeping Californians healthy and safe.

Marin was eligible to advance to yellow Tier 4, further opening the economy and taking another step toward prepandemic normalcy. However, The County did not advance from the “moderate risk” to the more open “minimal risk” tier. The adjusted virus rate needs to be below 2.0 per 100,000 residents to advance, but Marin’s rate on May 3 was 2.5.

The following table outlines the requirements for case rates, test positivity rates, and quartile test positivity rates for each tier status, as well as CDPH’s May 4 assessment for Marin:

  Tier 1
(Widespread)
Tier 2
(Substantial)
Tier 3
(Moderate)
Tier 4
(Minimal)
Marin County
Adjusted Case Rate per 100,000 > 10 6 to 10 2 to 5.9 < 2 2.5
Overall Test Positivity Rate > 8% 5% to 8% 2% to 4.9% < 2% 0.9%
Equity Quartile Test Positivity Rate > 8.0% 8.0% ≤ 5.2% 2.1% 1.1%

Recent cases attributable to travel and social gatherings have impacted local cases rates, and the vast majority are among residents who are unvaccinated. In addition, the B.1.1.7 (UK) variant of the coronavirus is showing up more often in Bay Area, and it is more susceptible to spreading than the original strain of COVID-19.

In addition, Marin County Public Health is seeing a correlation between new COVID-19 cases and lack of vaccination. Of the 324 cases that have been diagnosed over the past month, 87% are among people who have received no vaccine.
