Infections Persist; 2 New Deaths Reported 

Two COVID-19 deaths were reported to Marin County Public health this week. Both were residents above the age of 75. 

Mortality rates have declined significantly since vaccinations were made widely available. Over the first year of the pandemic, an average of 15 Marin residents died each month from COVID-19. Since April 1, that number has dropped to an average of two per month on average. In Marin, 98% of residents above age 65 have had at least one dose of vaccine. However, fatal COVID-19 infections persist among the small fraction of unvaccinated residents.  

One of the latest decedents was vaccinated and one was not. Marin County Public Health will not release additional identifying information about the decedents for the privacy of their families.   

Vaccination remains the single most valuable tool to prevent hospitalization and death. 
We urge residents to focus on community well-being:  

  • Get vaccinated if you haven’t already and make smart choices for safer interactions.  
  • Wear a face covering in indoor public settings regardless of vaccination status. 
  • Stay home when sick. 
  • Limit celebrations to outdoor environments, especially while the Delta variant continues to circulate.
