It is with great sadness that the Moultrie County Health Department (MCHD) confirms a fourth COVID-19 related death of a Moultrie County male resident in his 70s.

Angela Hogan, Administrator for the Moultrie County Health Department, said, “We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends and ask for their privacy during this difficult time. The MCHD will release no additional information.” To date, 223 Moultrie County residents have tested positive for COVID-19, which includes three previous COVID-19 related deaths.

The MCHD strongly advises individuals and businesses to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities by using these precautions:
