The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays 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.  

New Dashboard: Vaccination Status of Recent Cases 

In ongoing efforts to keep our public informed, Marin County Public Health epidemiologists have developed a new dashboard comparing the vaccination status of recent COVID-19 cases. The new dashboard reveals the majority of recent cases have been among unvaccinated individuals. 

The dashboard can be viewed on the data & surveillance page and compares case rates between fully vaccinated and unvaccinated residents who have had a positive COVID-19 test, over a seven day average. A person is considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after their final dose of the vaccine. All others are considered unvaccinated. As you interact with the dashboard, you can hover over the line graph to see a comparison of case rates versus the overall countywide average. 

A “breakthrough” case is when a fully vaccinated individual tests positive for COVID-19.  While there have been few breakthrough cases over the past few weeks, only 2 confirmed breakthrough cases have been hospitalized, and none have died. 

Testing Is Still Available   

Testing is still an important tool we can continue to use in our toolkit, whether we are vaccinated or not.    

Why? With COVID-19 testing, people who test positive and have symptoms can get care earlier, likely reducing disease severity.  That person’s contacts can be traced, and quarantine started earlier to reduce the chance of infecting other people.    

The CDC offers the following recommendations for who should get tested: 

The following people should get tested for COVID-19: 

  • People who have symptoms of COVID-19
  • People who are fully vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine should be evaluated by their healthcare provider and tested for COVID-19 if indicated
  • People without symptoms of COVID-19 such as: 
  • People not fully vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine who have had close contact with someone with confirmed COVID-19 (including a person who does not have symptoms within 10 days of their positive test result). 
  • People not fully vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19, such as attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded indoor settings. 
  • People not fully vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine who are prioritized for expanded community screening for COVID-19. 
  • People not fully vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine who have been asked or referred to get testing by their school, workplace, healthcare provider, statetriballocal external icon or territorial health department

If you are not sure if you should be tested, the CDC offers a Coronavirus Self Checker tool which will assist in making decisions on when to seek testing and medical care.
