Watonwan County reports first COVID-19 death

Watonwan County announced Wednesday that the county had its first confirmed death as a result of the COVID-19 virus.

Watonwan County Public Health reported an individual in their 80s had died as a result of the virus. As of Wednesday, the county had a cumulative total of 327 lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases, with patients ranging in age from 1 to 96.

"While the virus does not discriminate, individuals over the age of 65 are at higher risk of severe illness and negative consequences," a press release stated. "This development serves as a sad reminder: It is critical that individuals and organizations take action to slow the spread of the virus - adhere to the statewide mask mandate and follow all applicable guidance and recommendations from national, state and local health officials."
