Port Arthur Reports 28th and 29th Deaths Related to COVID-19

September 29, 2020

It is with great sadness that the City of Port Arthur is reporting two (2) COVID-19 related deaths in residents of Port Arthur.  One individual was a White male between the age range of 60-65 and the other individual was an African American female between the age range of 90-95.  It has been determined that both individuals had underlying health conditions.  The Health Department has reported twenty-nine (29) COVID-19 related deaths in residents of Port Arthur.

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.
