June 29, 2020  It is with deep sadness that Lucas County Public Health is announcing our 4th COVID-19 related death of one of our fellow community members. We, as well as all of our community Public Safety and Emergency Response partners, send our deepest condolences to the family of this individual. Our community holds this family in our thoughts and prayers and to respect the family’s privacy we are unable to release any details about the individual other than they were an elderly adult (age 80+). We emphasize the seriousness of this disease and the importance of the measures we're taking as individuals, as a county, and state to help slow the spread of the virus. We urge everyone to continue to follow the recommendations of the Governor’s Office, Iowa Department of Public Health and the CDC.
