To measure COVID-19 activity in our community, Marin County Public Health uses both case frequency and wastewater sampling. When people have COVID-19 infection, the virus spreads through their digestive system to our wastewater. This means that the amount of virus in our wastewater (sewage) generally reflects the level of infection in our community. This new dashboard shows the average amount of virus (SARs-CoV-2 replicates per milliliter) at five wastewater collection sites across the Navy. At each site, two samples are taken up to three times a week. Communities were selected based on technical capacity to obtain samples, historical prevalence of COVID-19, and population size. This dashboard, available on our monitoring pageupdated weekly.

More information on wastewater monitoring and concentrations across the Bay Area can be found at Covid-WEB (Wastewater Epidemiology for the Bay Area) page.

Think positive, test negative

Testing is an important tool we have available to help combat the spread of COVID-19 in our community. If you experience symptoms related to COVID-19, do not hesitate and get tested as soon as possible. This is highly recommended even if you are up to date on your vaccinations. It’s an easy step to take, and finding out if you’re positive is helping others test negative.

Alternatively, are you in close contact with someone who is COVID positive? Slow down the spread by following Isolation and quarantine guidance and get a COVID-19 test 5 days after your exposure. Protect those you love by taking advantage of the testing opportunities available in Marin County.

COVID-19 data update:

As of February 16, our COVID-19 status update changed in frequency and is now published on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays except public holidays. Because these updates are no longer released on consecutive days, the last column of each data table now reflects the change from the last status update, not a change from the previous day.
