It is with great sadness that today we are reporting the first death of a Hood River County resident from COVID-19. This person was in their nineties, tested positive October 9th and died on October 14th. We extend our deepest condolences to family and friends!
At this time we ask all to respect the privacy of those involved. We call upon the compassion, strength and determination of our local residents as we resolve to remain united in our efforts to protect the most vulnerable among us.
Please continue to wear a mask when you are not able to maintain a minimum of six feet from those you do not live with. Wash your hands frequently and, no matter your age, if you are feeling at all ill stay at home!
