Visit our Data & Surveillance webpage to view interactive graphs for confirmed COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths. Data analysis is available by age range, gender, race 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.
How you can help
Thank you to all who have called or emailed to ask how they can help with the local COVID-19 response. There are three ways you can assist at this time:
- We are looking for licensed health care professionals to support contact investigations or clinical operations. Volunteers in this area must be 18 years or older, have a valid California license for clinical practice and have no negative licensure or certification actions. Health care professionals who wish to volunteer should read the eligibility and registration process on the Marin Medical Reserve Corps website and then register on the California Healthcare Volunteers (DHV) website.
- If you are not a healthcare professional, you can still help with our community’s COVID-19 response. Currently, the greatest volunteer need in Marin is help at food banks and food distribution sites. Register with the Center for Volunteerism and Non-Profit Leadership (CVNL).
- Consider making a monetary donation to Marin Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund. The fund will help provide rental assistance to Marin residents who are at risk of losing housing due to COVID-19 related income loss. During the first week of the program, more than 1,500 requests for rental assistance were received totaling approximately $2.4 million in funding requests. Donations of any size are welcome.
