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.
We’ve 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.
