First COVID-19 fatality in Gilliam County

The first person to die from COVID-19 in Gilliam County was reported today by Gilliam County Court Judge Elizabeth Farrar.

In a PSA to media, a statement read “It is with great sadness that we report the death of a beloved Gilliam County resident to COVID-19. We extend our deepest sympathy to the family members, friends and all others affected by this tragic loss.”

Gilliam County was one of just a handful of counties in the state of Oregon that had avoided a fatality from the coronavirus.

The statement continued by saying “At this time of grief, we remind all to respect the privacy of those involved. We call upon the compassion, strength and determination of the people of Gilliam County as we resolve to remain united in our efforts to protect the health and well-being of all residents.”
