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.
Today, we launched Marin County Indicators for Assessing Progress on Containing COVID-19. This webpage provides data related to indicators that are being tracked by Health Officers across the Bay Area to measure progress in containing COVID-19 and assess to what extent we can continue to loosen the shelter in place order. View a recent explanation of the dashboard from Dr. Matt Willis.
Guidance Coming for Reopening Retail and Manufacturing Businesses
As curbside retail businesses and manufacturers in Marin County prepare for reopening, clear guidance is coming on how and when business can safely resume and the tools that will make the reopening planning process easier.
On May 15, the public health officer for Marin County will issue a new shelter-in-place order allowing curbside retail and manufacturing to open across Marin cities, towns and unincorporated areas on May 18. This builds on the May 4 order, which re-opened outdoor businesses and construction.
Marin Recovers Industry Advisors – comprised of industry experts, business representatives, residents, public health professionals and local government – has created industry-specific working groups to collaborate on reopening the economy and community while supporting businesses with the reopening process.
The result includes clear guidelines for reopening that are aligned with state and local public health requirements and result in safe and productive businesses environments. The goal of the guidelines, available May 15, is to ensure that every business owner is well prepared to protect both employees and customers when they reopen. Details will be posted on the business section of MarinRecovers.com, which connects Marin business owners and residents with recovery and business reopening information. [READ MORE]
