FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Haywood County Reports 38th & 39th COVID-19 deaths

Haywood County Health and Human Services is reporting its 38th and 39th COVID-19 deaths. 

Both deaths list COVID-19 as the underlying cause of death (the disease that initiated the events resulting in death.)  Both individuals died in the hospital, were over the age of 70, and had several underlying medical conditions.  

One had been exposed to COVID-19 through contact with multiple positives in the family, while the other was a secondary contact in a COVID-19 cluster identified at Enchanting Hair Fashions Salon in September. This is the third death to result from that cluster. To protect the families’ privacy, no further information about these patients will be released.

“Our sympathies go out to the families and loved ones.  This is a sad reminder that COVID-19 is a serious and sometimes deadly illness,” said Interim Haywood County Health Director Garron Bradish. 

“We urge all citizens to do their part by observing social distancing, wearing masks, and practicing good hygiene,” said Bradish.
