The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekly and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic response. We remain here for you.


Understanding COVID-19 Deaths in Marin

COVID-19 is still a leading cause of preventable death in our community. To better understand factors contributing to mortality, Marin County Public Health analyzed all deaths in the past 6 months. Here’s what we found:

  • For the past six months, COVID deaths have been about evenly split between residents of long term care facilities and people living in the community. This is a shift from the prior pattern, where two thirds of deaths were among facility residents.
  • Among residents living in the community who died from COVID, 35 percent were not fully vaccinated, and the average age of death was 10 years younger than that of facility residents (77 versus 87 years, respectively.)

This means that deaths among unvaccinated older adults who are infected in the community are a major contributor to ongoing and preventable COVID-19 mortality in Marin County.

Know your COVID-19 Community Level

The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in Marin or other community in which you live, work or visit.
