An 80-Year-Old Male is the 74th, a 66-Year-Old Male is the 75th, and an 84-Year-Old Male is the 76th Allegany County Residents to Pass Away as a Result of COVID-19
The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) is sad to report to our residents and community that there have been three (3) additional COVID-19 related deaths bringing our local total to 76. These deaths, a male age 80, a male age 66, and a male age 84 were due to complications or a consequence of COVID-19. We extend our deepest condolences to their families, and we ask that you respect the families’ privacy during this difficult time.
Our hospitals and emergency services are seeing all-time high positive COVID numbers. Getting the COVID vaccine has shown to reduce the risk of hospitalizations and serious illness by more than 89 percent. Our hospitals are seeing over 80 percent of the COVID patients are unvaccinated and have severe illness. We make this plea to our residents that if you have not been vaccinated yet, please get vaccinated. COVID-19 has been affecting younger and younger individuals and has impacted many of our loved ones, friends, and neighbors.
