Port Arthur Reports the Ninth (9th) Death for Nederland Related to COVID-19

September 8, 2020

It is with great sadness that the City of Port Arthur and Jefferson County Health Departments are reporting the death of a Nederland resident.  The individual was a White male between the age range of 55-60, and he was reported to have underlying health conditions. This is the ninth (9) COVID related death reported for Nederland.  

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 a mask when in public.
