The Marin County Public Health Status Update is published weekly to share news and resources related to pandemic response and recovery, emergency preparedness, and other public health priorities.

Genes that Protect Against COVID Symptoms 

Dr. Matt Willis summarizes groundbreaking research that begins to explain why some people get sicker than others when infected with COVID-19. The findings highlight the role of genetics in COVID-19 vulnerability and pave the way for potential new therapies.   

Marin County Tobacco Control Progress  

Smoking is a leading cause of preventable death. In 2008, the American Lung Association gave Marin County a grade of D on their State Tobacco Control report card. Through years of advocacy and progressive policies, today Marin has nearly straight A’s. Marin’s remarkable turnaround was recently published as a case study in successful public health partnerships.   

Marin Public Health Pursuing Accreditation  

Marin County Public Health has chosen to pursue accreditation through the national Public Health Accreditation Board. This voluntary step is an opportunity to refine and codify strengths while systematically addressing gaps, to best serve our community. The process extends over a two-year period and involves verifying performance across ten core domains of public health practice.   

Bystander Support for Cardiac Arrest 

Cardiac Arrest is a leading cause of death in Marin and nationally. You can help save a life by taking action before the ambulance arrives. With the PulsePoint Respond app you can be notified when a cardiac arrest occurs nearby. The app connects the over 300 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) throughout Marin. You may be the closest person and offer life-saving care they need. Download the app today.
