New Evacuation Mapping Tool Unveiled for Marin 

During National Preparedness Month (NPM), we have been sharing information each Wednesday so the public is more aware of the importance of planning for emergencies. In the previous Status Update’s honoring of NPM, we compared the effects of wildfire smoke to COVID-19 symptoms. This week, we are excited to announce a valuable resource for our community.  

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Marin residents have helped protect themselves and each other from the virus by planning ahead and mapping out lower-risk options for everything from errands to gatherings and celebrations.  

Now, residents have a new tool to use during natural disasters and other emergencies to help them be better informed and able to quickly map out the best path to safety. Yesterday, Marin County law and fire agencies launched an interactive map that will also help communities and first responders more effectively plan, communicate and execute emergency evacuations. The new tool will complement Alert Marin emergency notifications.

Earlier this week it was announced that the COVID-19 pandemic had surpassed the death toll from the 1918 influenza pandemic, making it the deadliest outbreak in our country’s history. This somber milestone is a reminder that the threat of COVID-19 is real and we as a community need to work together to be vigilant against the Delta variant.  

Marin County boasts a population with one of the highest vaccination rates in the country. This -- in addition to strong adherence to wearing masks and other safety measures -- has helped us reduce the spread of COVID-19 and has kept us safe. Additionally, being properly informed and understanding data have been pivotal. Unlike in 1918, vast amounts of relevant data are available to the public, and essential information is only a few clicks away. We’ve made information and data easily accessible through various mediums.  

At the start of the pandemic, this Status Update publication was intended to provide regular updates to key stakeholders and elected officials. Since that time, our Status Updates have evolved to be a vital source of public information and are provided every weekday and as needed for special releases. Today, our subscription reaches over 34,000 Marin County residents (plus thousands more who access it through social media).  

Marin County has been recognized for its transparency during the pandemic and has listened to the community to add additional relevant data points (like case rates of those who are vaccinated versus those who are unvaccinated). These Status Updates bring the most commonly requested data points together for your convenience – but there are additional data resources at your fingertips:
