1st death linked to COVID-19 in Nevada County

Nevada County Public Health is reporting the first Nevada County death related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The person was an elderly eastern Nevada County resident who had underlying health conditions and previously tested positive for the coronavirus. 

“During this time, our thoughts are with the family, friends and loved ones of the deceased,” said Dr. Ken Cutler, Nevada County public health officer. “This is a tragic reminder of the seriousness of COVID-19. To slow the spread of this virus, we all need to stay inside as much as possible and severely limit person to person interactions, as hard as that is.”

Out of respect for the privacy of the family, Nevada County Public Health is not sharing further details.
