How low is the COVID-19 transmission in the San Francisco Bay Area right now?

While the COVID-19 pandemic elsewhere in the country is reducing cases and deaths in California, the San Francisco Bay Area is doing particularly well. But exactly how low are the transmission rates in the nine-county region?

The well-vaccinated region generally performs better than the rest of the state. Here is a look at the seven-day positivity, seven-day average of cases per. 100,000 people and a seven-day average of deaths per 100,000, respectively, for California and each of the counties per. September 16 based on the state dashboard.

California: 3.4% test positivity (seven-day rate), 20.0 cases per 100,000 (seven-day average), 0.2 deaths per 100,000 (seven-day average)
Alameda: 2.3% test positivity, 11.1 cases per 100,000, 0.01 deaths per. 100,000
Contra Costa: 3.2% test positivity, 15.2 cases per 100,000, 0.2 deaths per. 100,000
Marine: 2.1% test positivity, 8.3 cases per. 100,000, 0 deaths per. 100,000
Napa: 3.8% test positivity, 18.8 cases per 100,000, 0.2 deaths per. 100,000
San Francisco: 2.0% positivity, 10.1 cases per. 100,000, 0.2 deaths per. 100,000
San Mateo: 1.9% test positivity, 9.5 cases per 100,000, 0.04 deaths per. 100,000
Santa Clara: 1.7% test positivity, 11.3 cases per. 100,000, 0.1 deaths per. 100,000
Solano: 4.1% test positivity, 19.9 cases per 100,000, 0.4 deaths per. 100,000
Sonoma: 2.6% test positivity, 13.2 cases per 100,000, 0.1 deaths per. 100,000

The numbers are all heading in a downward direction and going down where the state and Bay Area were in June when the pandemic experienced a halt just before the state reopened to business and lifted most restrictions on June 15. On June 2, the state recorded an average of 2.1 cases per. 100,000 and 0.04 deaths per 100,000 over seven days. On June 1, the seven-day positivity was 0.8%.

Bay Area has had some of the strictest COVID restrictions in the country. All counties in the region mandate masks indoors except Solano.

San Francisco and Berkeley require proof of vaccination to enter indoor bars, restaurants, clubs, gyms and major indoor events. Customers under 12 are exempt. A negative COVID-19 test is not a substitute. Contra Costa County on Tuesday issued a similar mandate to enter indoor restaurants, bars and gyms, though both evidence of full vaccination or a negative coronavirus test is acceptable.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID Data Tracker card also provides an overview of how counties are doing; the card is based on a county’s moving seven-day number of new COVID-19 cases and COVID-19 test positivity percentage.

The severity of the pandemic in each county is represented by four levels: high, significant, moderate, and low.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Alameda are all at the significant level from September 16th. Contra Costa, Napa, Solano and Sonoma are at the height. Just south of the Bay Area, Monterey and Santa Cruz are significant.

The rest of the state is mostly a sea of ​​red except for a few counties with low transmission: Lassen, Modoc, Mono and Sierra. While downtown California is a sea of ​​red, with the majority of counties seeing a high level of COVID-19 community transfer
