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

Today, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) provided another 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 third straight week. Marin County is one of only six California Counties not in Tier 1 (purple status), which is the most restrictive Tier of the blueprint.

CDPH’s December 1, 2020 assessment for Marin County includes:

  Tier 1
(Widespread)
Tier 2
(Substantial)
Tier 3
(Moderate)
Tier 4
(Minimal)
Marin County
Adjusted Case Rate per 100,000 > 7 4 to 7 1 to 3.9 < 1 4.4
Overall Test Positivity Rate > 8% 5% to 8% 2% to 4.9% < 2% 1.8%

CDPH’s update was based on data from November 19 to November 25 with a four-day lag. Marin’s adjusted case rate and test positivity rate have increased by 1.0 and 0.3%, respectively, since CDPH’s analysis on Saturday, November 28.

Marin’s Blueprint progress:

  • Aug 28: Blueprint introduced; Marin placed in Tier 1
  • Sept. 15: Marin graduates to Tier 2
  • Oct. 27: Marin graduates to Tier 3
  • Nov. 16: Marin moved back to Tier 2

For Marin County to move forward, 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.

Recap: Special webinar for Youth Sports Organizers

In case you missed it, Marin Public Health and Marin Recovers held a special webinar this afternoon specifically for youth sports organizations, clubs or providers to discuss ways to reduce COVID-19 infections among youth athletes and supporters. 

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.

Archive of the webinar can be found online and is linked below. Please forward this information to any sports providers, coaches or trainers you may know so we can stop this trend.
