It is with profound regret that the Moultrie County Health Department (MCHD) confirms the passing of two residents, two females in their 80s.
“We send our heartfelt condolences to their friends and family,” Moultrie County Health Department Administrator, Angela Hogan, RN, MSPH, said. “We ask for understanding and the privacy of their loved ones as they mourn.”
