"Coronavirus cases in Marin have climbed by more than 50% over the past two weeks, bringing the county's total to 420 on Tuesday. The county has reported five of its six highest one-day jumps in cases in those two weeks since May 12, when there were 271 cumulative cases.
"It's concerning," said Dr. Matt Willis, the county's chief public health officer, noting that Marin's coronavirus curve is increasing.
Almost 200 people who have tested positive in Marin "” roughly half of the county's total "” live in an area that includes San Rafael and surrounding neighborhoods, according to data provided by the county Department of Health and Human Services. The department only provides a breakdown of cases for five regions within the county. An area that includes Novato has almost 100 cases, the Southern Marin area has 59, Central Marin has 46 and West Marin has 15.
Willis said he plans to extend Marin's stay-at-home order, which is set to expire June 1, but he will ease certain restrictions depending on this week's test results and hospitalizations. More cases could mean more restrictions will stay in place, he said."
