Two Additional COVID-19 Deaths Reported
The Lenawee County Health Department (LCHD) has been notified of two deaths of Lenawee County Residents who were previously diagnosed with COVID-19; bringing the total number of deaths to 10 with an average age of 69.7 years of age. These recent deaths include an 80 year old female who had previously resided at The Oasis at Adrian Rehabilitation Center and a 95 year old female resident of our county. “Our heartfelt sympathies and prayers go out to the families who have lost their loved ones,” said Martha Hall, Health Officer at LCHD.
COVID-19 activity is increasing in Lenawee County. Of the 221 total cases reported in the last 15 weeks, 45 of those cases or 20% have been reported in the last 10 days. Three of these new cases are employees of Provincial House of Adrian and one is an employee of the Adrian Dominican Sisters. Many of the recent cases have a history of recent travel or attendance at a gathering or are the close contact of someone who had a history of recent travel or attendance at a gathering.
The following prevention strategies will protect the health of our community, including our most vulnerable residents and keep our economy open; keep gatherings small, gather outdoors rather than indoors, maintain 6-feet of distance from others not of the same household, wear cloth face coverings when in enclosed public spaces and when outdoors if unable to maintain 6 feet of distance from non-household members, wash hands frequently and stay home when sick.
