The Ravalli County Public Health Department has issued the following statement:
Good morning Ravalli County. We are deeply saddened to report the passing of three of our county residents due to complications of COVID-19.
- A female in her 80’s that just recently celebrated a birthday.
- A male in his 80’s
- A male in his 60’s
We urge county residents to follow the best practice guidelines to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. In recent weeks we have seen the number of those infected with the virus jump dramatically. Public health has strived to meet the needs of so many. We have brought on additional professional staff to contact trace and guide residents through these uncertain times. We recommend residents keep their cohort circles small. Practice physical distancing whenever possible. Wear a mask in public when physical distancing is difficult to maintain. Frequent hand washing and sanitizing when hand washing is unavailable. Most importantly remembering that our community needs “U” and “I” to make good choices.
Ravalli County Public Health would like to thank all of its residents for their continued due diligence to help slow the spread of this virus. Want to help?
