Recent data reveals that Marin County experienced the lowest rates of absenteeism in the Bay Area during the pandemic. This coincided with community-wide commitment to open schools safely and completely, as early as possible. Across California, chronic absenteeism rates have surged, impacting every Bay Area county.
This week, Marin County has reached the threshold for moving from Low to Medium COVID-19 Level, following a 6-week upward trend in the amount of virus in Marin wastewater.
