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.

New Data Prompts E-Bike Safety Alert  

In November 14, Marin County Public Health issued a health advisory prompted by an increase in 911 responses for e-bike accidents, particularly among young people. 71% of bike accidents among residents aged 10-19 years were e-bike related, compared to 12% among adults. To help guide bike safety measure, this week Marin County Public Health launched a new dashboard displaying all 911 responses to bike accidents countywide, which will be updated weekly. 

Marin Hospitals Receive Top Grades in Safety 

All three Marin County hospitals received A grades from the Leapfrog Group. This week the Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit watchdog group that tracks hospital safety practices and outcomes, released its fall 2023 Hospital Safety Grades.  The reflects the dedication of hospital leadership and staff to patient safety.  While many hospitals have seen a fall in their grades post-pandemic, Marin hospitals are showing their resilience and ongoing commitment to excellence in patient care.  

Fall COVID Vaccine Fest Tomorrow 

While COVID transmission continues to rise in Marin, less than 20% of our community has received the updated COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone seeking the protection of vaccine is invited to a special clinic tomorrow at the vaccine clinic hosted by Marin Health & Human Services and Safeway Pharmacy. Schedule an appointment today or walk-in! 

Marin ‘Respiratory Virus Season’ Toolkit  

Marin Health and Human Services’ communication team has developed a “Respiratory Virus Season" toolkit with graphics, printable flyers, videos and messages in English and Spanish. Materials, which include information on COVID, flu, and RSV protection, are available for all community partners and residents to share local health messages through their networks, including social media.
