“Sadly, we’ve lost another member of our community. We had our sixth fatality … a woman in her 70s with underlying medical conditions,” McMahon said during his daily coronavirus briefing at the Oncenter. “This virus, this disease is a killer … and our community at large needs to start recognizing that more and take this very, very seriously.”

The county executive again stressed the need for residents to follow the social-distancing rules and stay home.
