The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekly and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic response. We remain here for you. 

New Public Health Dashboard: Local Data for Local Action 

Today, Marin County Public Health launched a new tool to engage and educate the community we serve. Six data dashboards reflecting local public health priorities were posted online, and are accessed via a single landing page. Explore information on Reportable Communicable Diseases, COVID-19Life Expectancy by Community, Non-fatal and Fatal OverdosesHepatitis C, and the COVID-19 Community Assessment. Stay tuned as we add more dashboards to address emerging public health priorities.  

Climate Change and Infectious Diseases  

This week the CDC reported cases of malaria that were acquired in the United States. The presence of malaria-carrying mosquitoes in Florida signals the northern migration of tropical disease vectors due to climate change. No locally acquired malaria cases have been reported in California. A wet spring has increased local mosquito activity. The Marin/Sonoma Mosquito & Vector Control District samples local mosquito populations for emerging diseases and offers guidance for personal protection.   

Minor Heat Event Signals Time to Prepare  

As temperatures in the Bay Area rise this weekend, the National Weather Service (NWS) HeatRisk forecasts Moderate/Orange level for Marin County. As a reminder, when NWS heat risk reaches Major/Red level local cooling centers may be activated for relief. Stay updated on availability and locations of cooling centers via Marin County's Emergency Portal. Explore cooling tips from Marin Health & Human Services, and remember hydration is critical for handling hot conditions.   

Marin COVID Levels 

Today’s wastewater surveillance results show the lowest levels of SARS-CoV-2 in Marin since the start of the Omicron surge in December 2021. While small outbreaks persist in long term care settings, the proportion of cases being hospitalized continue to decline with high facility vaccination rates. Marin COVID Level remains low, and we will continue to monitor and report local activity.
