Marylou Armer

Detective Marylou Armer died after contracting COVID-19 while on duty. It is presumed she contracted the illness during her duties as a domestic violence detective which required her to visit local hospitals, the county jail, confined interview rooms, and other high-risk locations.

Detective Armer had served with the Santa Rosa Police Department for 20 years. She is survived by her husband and daughter.

In early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders died as a result of COVID-19.
