Nederland Suffers Fourth Death Related to COVID-19

July 17, 2020

It is with great sadness that the City of Port Arthur and Jefferson County Health Departments are reporting the fourth COVID-19 related death in a resident of Nederland. The individual was a white female between the age ranges of 80-85. It has been determined that this individual had underlying health conditions. We join in mourning this loss of life, and encourage all citizens to please stay safe.

We emphasize again that COVID-19 is a very serious disease. While 80% of individuals who contract COVID-19 will have mild to moderate symptoms and fully recover, they may spread the disease to people who are at high risk. The elderly and people with underlying health conditions or weakened immune systems are at a much higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19. We strongly advise at-risk individuals to minimize contact with others who are ill and practice social distancing and wear mask when in public.
