Woman is county’s third death during pandemic

Special to Branson Globe

The Taney County Health Department announces the third death from COVID-19 in Taney County. The individual was a woman in her 80’s.

“We are heartbroken to announce the third death in our county from COVID-19,” said Lisa Marshall, Director of the TCHD. “We want to express our sincerest condolences to the patient’s family and loved ones.”

Marshall went on to state, “This is a time for each community member to take social responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19. Please wear a face covering or mask, follow social distancing guidelines, wash your hands and stay home if you are sick.”

TCHD continues to urge those with COVID-19 symptoms to seek testing through their healthcare provider.

Our news partner Hometown Daily News was one of several media outlets that received information about a possible confirmed case of COVID-19 at the K-1 Camp outside of Branson. While no official confirmation has been received as of Friday morning, a story published on the NBC News Website Thursday indicates that a parent of a camper at the K-1 camp received an e-mail from officials at Kanakuk Monday night that K-1 had a confirmed COVID case and was ending their session midterm. Springfield’s NBC Affiliate KY-3 asked for confirmation from Kanakuk Communications Director Jeff Mason but only got confirmation of the cases being worked from the K-2 Camp in Stone County.

Kanakuk did release a statement later confirming the 34 positive cases that were confirmed with onsite testing at the K-2 Camp in Lampe.
