The following is a press release issued by Mendocino County Public Health:

A 96 year old Fort Bragg man has been confirmed as Mendocino County’s 76th death. At this time Public Health asks all Mendocino County residents to exercise caution when placing themselves in situations that could expose them to COVID-19, especially considering the new more infectious Delta variant.

The individual in question was vaccinated.



  1. 98? Wow. I bet he had other health issues. Even a bad cold or flu could dispatch someone of this age. Was a PCR test done? What co-morbidities did this person have?

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
