First Passing due to COVID-19

Release Date: 2020-03-22

Unfortunately we have had our first death related to COVID-19. She was in her 50s and had pre-existing medical conditions. Our love, support, and prayers go out to her family and her loved ones.

We now have 21 positive cases, four of which have fully recovered. We are also monitoring approximately 190 other individuals. Please note due to limited testing capacity the number of individuals with COVID-19 is likely much higher.

If you want to help us stop the emergency that could face our hospitals in the weeks ahead, we need you to stay home if possible and social distance. Thank you.
