County COVID-19 report

Henderson County has confirmed its first fatality due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Henderson County Officials confirm the report of a Covid-19 related death within the unincorporated area of Henderson County.  The individual was originally diagnosed early during the pandemic and had been hospitalized for several weeks.” County Judge Wade McKinney said.

Officials continue  to encourage everyone to observe the social distancing standards of 6 feet when in public.  Officials ask that if you are sick please stay home and contact medical professionals. Individuals who are most vulnerable to illness should give consideration to the limiting of their time away from home and their contact with individuals outside of the immediate household.

Personal hygiene and social distancing remain the most effective deterrents to the contraction and spread of Covid-19.
