Video Update: What will it take to get off the State’s Watch List?

One of the top questions we’ve received recently is regarding California Department of Public Health’s county monitoring list and what it means for Marin.  Dr. Matt Willis, Marin’s Public Health Officer, provides some clarity on the data that determines our fate and what we can do as a community to work toward getting off the list.

New Data Sets Now Available

We've heard from many in the community about how we can make our data more helpful. Here are some of the changes we've implemented recently:

  • Thanks to new data available from California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, our status updates now provides clearer definitions of cumulative COVID-19 cases and a “resolved” (recovered) cases for the San Quentin population.  As a reminder, San Quentin data is kept separate from Marin’s total data (cases, deaths, cumulative hospitalizations), except for current hospitalizations, which measures current hospital impact.
  • Residential Care & Skilled Nursing Facility data provided in the daily status updates now clarifies deaths among facility patients and/or staff.  Residential Care & Skilled Nursing Facility Data is included in Marin’s total data.
  • Thanks to keen interest in COVID-19 cases among children, the demographics section of our data & surveillance webpage has been expanded to separate youth ages 0-9 from youth ages 10-18.
