Update on Fentanyl Overdose Spike: Request for Feedback 

In response to a cluster of overdoses in our community in late February, Marin Public Health released an Overdose Spike Alert for March 1-14, 2024. The overdose rate has returned to historical averages, and the alert will not be renewed. Overdose remains the leading cause of death in Marin residents aged 55 and younger, and we’re seeking new tools to address this crisis.  

The Overdose Spike Alert is a new process, and we’re looking for your feedback. Please respond to this 5 minute, anonymous survey and let us know if you saw the alert, how you responded, and how we can improve. All responses will be kept confidential and used to improve these alerts in the future. 

Flood Vulnerability Dashboard Launched 

Marin County is facing increased coastal flooding due to sea level rise and intensifying storms. In order to identify and guide strategies to protect our most vulnerable coastal communities, Marin Public Health has launched a new dashboard that takes both elevation and social factors into account. This is the first of a series of local “Climate and Health” maps that describe both social vulnerability and exposure risk for floods, heat waves, and wildfires. 

Four Years  

Four years ago today, March 16, 2020, the public health officers of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties announced, with the City of Berkeley, the nation’s first stay at home order to control the spread of “novel coronavirus.” At that time, Marin County had 10 reported cases and 1 death. Now, nearly all residents have been infected at least once, Marin residents have received 900,233 COVID shots, and 371 residents have died from COVID-19.
