Henry County Health Center confirms two more COVID-19 related deaths




Henry County Health Center has received notification from the Department of Health and Senior Services of two more deaths due to complications related to COVID-19. Both residents were hospitalized prior to their death. The first death was a 75-year-old female from the town of Clinton, and the second was an 88-year-old female also from the town of Clinton. This brings the total number of COVID-19 related deaths in Henry County to 21.

“The most difficult part of the COVID-19 pandemic is losing our residents to the virus. To each of you who have lost loved ones to this virus, we are deeply sorry,” said the Henry County Health Center Administrator, Peggy Bowles. “This is a time when families and friends usually gather together, but this year, I am pleading with each of you to stay home if possible. But, if you must get out, please wear a face covering, remain six feet apart, and wash your hands. It is the simple things that will help reduce the spread of this disease, and could potentially save the lives or your family members.”

Henry County Health Center continuously updates the COVID-19 information on the HCHC Facebook page, Twitter, and on henrycohealth.org. Beginning January 1, 2021 there will be weekly updates on the status of the COVID-19 vaccine for our county. For further updates and information please review these social media platforms
