The man, who had self-quarantined at home since March 11, had contact with a known COVID-19 case out of state, the release states.

“The family of this individual has our most sincere sympathies,” DCHD Director Dr. Adi Pour said in the release. “This new disease has been in our community for only a short while, but those with co-morbidities are at a greater risk of complications.”

In a separate release, the health department also reported two new cases in the county, “according to preliminary data.”

The newest cases are two women in their 30s who both had contact with a person known to have coronavirus.

Douglas County now has 47 known cases of COVID-19, according to the release.
