The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is now publishing five days a week (Monday through Friday) and as needed, in order to share important news and resources in our battle against COVID-19 and to keep our economy running. We remain here for you.

 

Blueprint Update: Marin Retains Tier 2 Status

Today, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) provided its weekly update on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a statewide plan for reducing COVID-19 and keeping Californians healthy and safe.  As part of this process, CDPH assesses indicators that capture disease burden, testing, and health equity.  This assessment happens weekly on Mondays and CDPH releases updated tier assignments on Tuesdays.

CDPH confirmed Marin’s placement in Tier 2 (red status) for a second straight week. A county must remain in a tier for a minimum of three weeks before being able to advance to a less restrictive tier. CDPH’s September 22 assessment for Marin County includes:

  • Testing Positivity: 2.6
  • Adjusted Case Rate: 4.8

For Marin County to move into Tier 3, we must continue to work collectively to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Our case rate must fall below “4” in order to qualify for Tier 3 (orange status).  Our testing positivity rate already meets the orange status criteria, falling within the 2 - 4.9% threshold.
