Marin Recognized for Transparency in Response 

Marin County has been nationally recognized for excellence in data practices in its pandemic response. The Center for Digital Government (CDG) placed Marin at the top among all medium sized counties nationally within its population category.     

CDG’s announcement stated that “Marin County adapted Information Technology Governance to circumstances in the chaotic onset of the pandemic. County departments formed a collaboration, the Marin County Data (‘MCData’) Committee, to develop data-driven strategies and programs which link the performance measurement program and departmental needs. Both data governance and open data were connected to data-driven decisions which improved transparency as well.” This regularly published Status Update is one example of the data transparency that Marin is being recognized for.

Marin’s Latest COVID-19 Death 

Marin County Public Health has reported the first COVID-19 death of a county resident since mid-May. The resident had not been vaccinated against COVID-19 and died Wednesday, July 21, after being admitted to a hospital with respiratory symptoms.    

The fatality was the 186th in Marin during the pandemic. All Marin County residents who have died from COVID-19 have been unvaccinated. No other identifying information will be released by Marin County Public Health.    

“It’s especially hard to see people dying from COVID-19 when we know how preventable it is,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County Public Health Officer. “This latest death has two lessons for us,” Willis said. “The first is how good the Delta variant is at finding unvaccinated people, and the second is that unvaccinated people lack protection against severe illness and death.”   

Health officials urge people of all ages to get vaccinated, not just for their own health but for the health of those around them. The Marin County Public Health website GetVaccinatedMarin.org includes a list of pop-up vaccination clinics at locations throughout the county. The Marin County Department of Health and Human Services’ COVID-19 website is updated regularly with the latest localized and statewide information about the virus.
