A Message of Gratitude from Dr. Matt Willis 

Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County Public Health Officer, shares a message to recognize our community’s success and express gratitude for strong effort among local residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19. He also advises to not let our guard down during the holiday season. Watch as he highlights the key ingredients that have played an important role in Marin’s noteworthy response to the pandemic.

Reflection and Appreciation from Marin Public Health 

As we prepare to feast and give thanks, Marin County Public Health would like to express our sincere appreciation to all of you. We are honored to serve our community, and grateful to our many partners for their support, as well as all residents of Marin County for adapting to the changing conditions of the pandemic to protect each other. Our pandemic response has been successful because of this collaborative effort.  

Last year at this time, we were seeing a rise in cases on the eve of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. In addition to sharing tips on celebrating safely in our Status Update a year ago, Marin’s Public Health Officer, Dr. Matt Willis shared an urgent message with Marin residents, asking for their help in stopping the surge. 

What a difference a year makes! A year later, the pandemic landscape in Marin has changed for the better. This year, 86.6% of Marin’s population age 5 and above have completed their vaccine series. Our county’s high vaccination rates mean we are starting the Thanksgiving holiday with about half the number of active cases as we witnessed last year.  

We are grateful to all of our partners and our community for the contributions they have made toward Marin’s pandemic response. It is thanks to all of you that we have reached this point.  

 

Holiday Schedule for COVID-19 Updates 

Some of our services will pause this week in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Here’s an overview:  

  • Data and Surveillance Webpage: no update on November 25 or 26, updates will resume on November 29.  
  • Marin County COVID-19 Status Update: will pause on Thursday and Friday in recognition of the holiday, but will be back in your inbox on Monday, November 29.  

We wish you a fantastic holiday. We are grateful to everyone doing their part to help keep our community safe.

Because DOF’s total population estimate is slightly larger than ACS’s estimate, our total vaccination rates dropped slightly.
