WHAT YOU MAY HAVE MISSED THIS WEEK:
82% of Marin County's eligible population fully vaccinated, yet COVID variant concerns remain
"Marin County has emerged as the most COVID-vaccinated county in California, and among the highest in the U.S. 'Our hope is to show what it looks like to be protected as a community,' said Dr. Matt Willis, Public Health Officer, remarking on the 90% of eligible residents who have received at least one dose. Just under 82% are fully protected... Of particular concern, he says, is the highly-contagious Delta variant, which originated in India. It is spreading in less-vaccinated parts of the U.S. and the world, and the CDC has indicated it expects the Delta to become the dominant strain. 'That variant is hitting the U.K. very hard right now and it's a warning sign to what might happen here,' said Brian Black of Ross."

Marin County Ahead Of Biden's Coronavirus Vaccine Goal
"The United States will miss President Joe Biden's goal of vaccinating 70 percent of all adults against the coronavirus by July 4, with only sixteen states and Washington, D.C., hitting the mark. Even so, the country has managed to drive infection rates down to levels not seen since March 2020, when the virus was concentrated in a handful of states. California is doing better than the national average when it comes to the percentage of adults vaccinated — 73.3 percent of all adults have received at least one dose, compared to 65.6 percent in the United States. Marin County is ahead of the country as a whole, with 88.7 percent of all adults with at least one dose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."

Marin nabs $380K for Tiburon beach sea-level rise project
"Marin County officials are set to begin designing a new sea-level rise defense project at a Tiburon beach that they say could be replicated at other San Francisco Bay shores as an alternative to concrete barriers and sea walls. The San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority allocated a $380,000 grant to Marin County Department of Public Works to begin designing the project at the eroding Greenwood Beach, just south of Tiburon’s popular Blackie’s Pasture. Rather than installing concrete rip rap or sea walls, the project would work to replenish gravel and sands at the beach in such a way that it prevents flooding and erosion. The project would have the additional benefits of improving shorebird habitat and creating a beach where visitors will be able to walk, swim and lounge next to the park, project proponents said."

Co-founder of Marin County’s Equator Coffees wins North Bay Business Leadership Pride award
"My partner Brooke and I started roasting coffee in 1995. We previously owned coffee bars but were not satisfied with the coffee we were able to buy wholesale. We knew we could offer a better product so we jumped into the roasting side of business.
Brooke has an incredible palate and trained herself to be a top notch roaster, I love selling things and would cold call every new cafe and restaurant I heard about."
