Some surrounding county rates include Siskiyou (15.4 percent), Shasta (12.5 percent), Trinity (15.4 percent), and Humboldt (9.5 percent). Marin (5.2 percent) had the lowest March rate and Colusa County remained highest (23.9 percent). The comparable U.S. rate was 7.6 percent, down 0.5 percentage points over the month.
