The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published two times per week and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you. 

 

COVID-19 Therapeutics: Paxlovid Rebound 

Today, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a health advisory regarding the potential for recurrence of COVID-19 or “COVID-19 rebound” after use of the COVID-19 treatment, Paxlovid. Marin County Public Health also issued a Public Health Advisory to local health providers on how best to monitor for recurrence of symptoms.  

The CDC advisory notes Paxlovid continues to be recommended for early-stage treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 among persons at high risk for progression to severe disease. Paxlovid treatment helps prevent hospitalization and death due to COVID-19. COVID-19 rebound has been reported to occur between 2 and 8 days after initial recovery, and is characterized by a recurrence of COVID-19 symptoms or a new positive viral test after having tested negative.  

A brief return of symptoms may be part of the natural history of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) infection in some persons, independent of treatment with Paxlovid and regardless of vaccination status. Limited information currently available from case reports suggests that persons treated with Paxlovid who experience COVID-19 rebound have had mild illness; there are no reports of severe disease. 

 

Data Dashboard Update: Case Rate by Age & Ethnicity 

Marin County Public Health epidemiologists have made an update to the “Demographic Trends in COVID-19 Cases” dashboard, giving viewers the option to toggle between the total number of cases and case rates per 100,000 people. The data is separated by age and ethnicity displayed in a 7-day moving average. This provides insight into how the rate at which certain groups within our population are infected with COVID. 

The latest version of the dashboard can be found on our Surveillance page. 

 

Public Health News: Monkeypox Update 

Over the course of the COVID-19 response, we have periodically included a non-coronavirus related update that was of local, regional or national urgency (local wildfires, heat or smoke advisories, etc.). 

 

Marin’s Public Health Officer, Dr. Matt Willis, shares a video update about the multi-country outbreak of monkey pox and what that might mean for Marin County. In addition, Marin County Public Health issued a public health advisory regarding the status of monkeypox in the United States, symptoms of the virus, and tips for anyone who has been exposed.
