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.


Blueprint Update: Marin Remains In Tier 2 (“Red”)

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.

CDPH confirmed Marin County’s placement in Tier 2 (red status) for a second straight week. Marin County is one of only eight California Counties in Tier 2, with five more in Tier 3 (orange status). All other counties are within the most restrictive Tier 1, (purple status).

CDPH’s November 24 assessment for Marin County includes:

  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 3.3
Overall Test Positivity Rate > 8% 5% to 8% 2% to 4.9% < 2% 1.4%

While this week’s data technically falls within Tier 3 levels, we must (1) have been in the current tier for a minimum of three weeks; and (2) meet criteria for the next less restrictive tier for all measures for the prior two consecutive weeks in order to progress to the next tier.

CDPH’s assessment was updated on November 23 with a 4-day lag on metrics, so the data presented reflects metrics for November 11-18.  This past weekend, we saw an increase in daily cases (Dr. Willis addresses this in his video, below), which will likely keep us in Tier 2 or possibly push us into Tier 1 soon.


Where can I find more detail on Marin’s Blueprint data?

We’ve overhauled our State Metrics for Marin County webpage to provide greater clarity of Marin’s Blueprint data over time, and how our data relates to the state’s tier framework. The webpage is updated whenever the State provides a new Blueprint update (typically Tuesday afternoons).  



Message from Dr. Willis: “Wake Up Call”

Marin’s Public Health Officer, Dr. Matt Willis, shares and urgent message with Marin residents, shedding light on some of the recent COVID case-trends in Marin County. Dr. Willis also discusses how our collective choices in celebrating the holidays safely can potentially stop or reduce a further surge in cases.

Special webinar for Youth Sports Organizers

Our local contact tracers are noticing a disturbing, growing trend: transmission of COVID-19 through youth sports. The main reason for this ranges from teams not wearing masks or following youth sports guidance, to teams traveling to areas outside of Marin County and bringing infections back with them.

The Marin Recovers Industry Advisors and Marin Public Health will hold a special webinar specifically for youth sports organizations, clubs or providers to discuss ways to reduce COVID-19 infections among youth athletes and supporters.  Please forward this information to any sports providers, coaches or trainers you may know so we can stop this trend.

Webinar Date:  Monday, November 30 at 2:00pm
