Second COVID-19-Related Death in Lake County

Lake County, CA (August 5, 2020) — It is with great sadness I report a second Lake County resident has died with a COVID-19-related illness.  This patient was over 60, had underlying medical conditions, and was sick for a few weeks prior to passing away.  We send our deepest condolences to all of those connected to this individual.  To protect the privacy of this person and their family, we will not be giving out any further information at this time.
This is a tragic reminder that all Lake County residents must take precautions that can slow the spread of this virus.  Thank you for continuing to do your part to protect those most vulnerable.
