"Nobody in Bolinas tested positive for the coronavirus last week in a rare, privately funded study that aimed to test all of the town’s residents, according to Marin County public health officials. Nearly 1,800 people were tested in the secluded town last week, according to Dr. Bryan Greenhouse, a UCSF infectious disease specialist and one of the study’s leaders.

“This is a sign to me that we really did get in front of this and interrupt transmission,” he said, noting there have been no confirmed cases in Bolinas since the first Marin County diagnosis was reported on March 9.
