The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekly and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic response. We remain here for you.

Video: New Variants in Marin County

Dr. Willis explains how an increased number of COVID-19 strains actively circulating in Marin, and the emergence of a new variant of concern, make forecasting 2023 a challenge. 

Wastewater shows some winter virus progress

Marin County has been using wastewater to track progress against the triple-demic of COVID-19, flu, and RSV. The latest results show mixed progress. Samples from December 26, show declines in both flu and RSV activity. COVID-19 levels, however, continue to rise and are at an all-time high since wastewater reporting began in August 2021. For more information visit COVID-19 Surveillance.

Your actions saved lives, thank you.

As our third pandemic year draws to a close, Marin County continues to demonstrate the tangible benefits of high vaccination rates. Local vaccine rates are the highest in the state for our youngest and our oldest residents, and the result is among the lowest rates of COVID-19 hospitalization and death. As we reflect on the losses and lives and livelihoods of the past year, let us also find gratitude for the impact of our actions in protecting one another.

Know your COVID-19 Community Level

The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in Marin or other community in which you live, work or visit.
