NOTICE FROM THE PORT ARTHUR HEALTH DEPARTMENT

Port Arthur Reports Fourteenth for Port Arthur and Fifth for Nederland 77627 as Deaths Related to COVID-19


July 31, 2020

It is with great sadness that the City of Port Arthur and Jefferson County Health Departments are reporting additional COVID-19 related deaths.  The Port Arthur resident is a Hispanic male between the age range of 70-75, and the Nederland resident is a White male between the age range of 55-60.  It has been determined that both individuals had underlying health conditions. This is the fourteenth (14th) COVID-19 related death for Port Arthur and the fifth (5th) death for Nederland (77627).       

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.
