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. We remain here for you.


Marin Drops to Yellow Tier based on CDC County Surveillance:

Residents following the federal metrics or Community COVID-19 Levels will note Marin is in the medium, or yellow tier, after two weeks in the high, or red tier. While case rates are declining slightly, this reclassification does not reflect a major change in Marin’s pandemic progress. CDC takes into account COVID hospitalizations in adjacent counties. Relative progress in neighboring counties with significantly higher hospitalization rates led to a change in the CDC tier. Visit the CDC’s Community Levels page to view Marin’s status.


Karina Arambula, Epidemióloga para el Condado de Marin:

¿Qué es lo que está impulsando la ola actual de casos de COVID? Karina Arambula, epidemióloga para el condado de Marin, nos cuenta sobre esta nueva ola de casos de COVID-19 y ofrece sugerencias sobre cómo mantenernos a nosotros mismos y a nuestras familias a salvo.



Health Officers Recognized

Drs. Matt Willis and Lisa Santora recently received special commendations from both the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the San Francisco- Marin Medical Society (SFMMS). The AAP award highlights the “radical collaboration” with local pediatricians during the COVID-19 pandemic, leading “to unparalleled levels of vaccination and excellent outcomes for COVID-19 impact in our community.” SFMMS represents over 3000 local physicians, and the award highlights excellence in protecting the community from the worst harms of COVID-19 surges.

CDC added a Wastewater Metric Chart this Week

This week, a new wastewater metric chart was added to the CDC’s COVID-19 Data Tracker Wastewater Surveillance webpage. This chart shows how virus levels in wastewater have increased or decreased across the United States since January 2021. For more information on how to use wastewater data, visit CDC’s National Wastewater Surveillance System website.
