Weekly Blueprint Update: Marin Moves to Tier 3 Status

With improving COVID-19 figures, Marin County graduated from “red” to “orange” status within the State of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, allowing some businesses to reopen for the first time while others can expand their operating capacity.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) moved the county from Tier 2 or “substantial risk” status to the less restrictive Tier 3 or “moderate risk” level. Fewer daily cases, a reduction in the proportion of positive tests among those who are tested, and progress in addressing the County’s lowest-income communities factored in to the state’s determination. Marin’s high rate of testing combined with a measured approach to reopening has contributed to the orange status achievement.

  Tier 1
Tier 2
Tier 3
Tier 4
Marin County
Adjusted Case Rate per 100,000 > 7 4 to 7 1 to 3.9 < 1 2.6
Overall Test Positivity Rate > 8% 5% to 8% 2% to 4.9% < 2% 1.4%
EquityQuartile Test Positivity Rate > 8.0% ≤ 8.0% ≤ 5.2% ≤ 2.1% 2.4%

Current Tier 3 business sector guidelines are available Marin Recovers website. All open businesses must complete a COVID-19 Site-Specific Protection Plan prior to reopening under Tier 3 restrictions. Guidance for the plan also is found on the Marin Recovers website.

See the news release for an explanation about what the means for local businesses.

* The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays. Monday editions of the status update include data from Monday plus Saturday and Sunday of the previous weekend. Therefore, data shown under the “change from last update” heading will always be larger on Mondays and differ from what is published on the Coronavirus in Marin homepage, which is updated seven days a week. 

** Our epidemiologists perform periodic data reconciliation as part of their quality improvement efforts. In doing so, today’s cumulative death total reduced from 101: two decedents had been diagnosed with COVID-19, but the final death certificates did not identify COVID as a contributing cause of death.
