BROOKINGS, Ore. — Curry County Public Health reported on Friday its first death attributed to coronavirus since the pandemic began, part of an outbreak at a long-term care facility in Harbor.

Public health officials said that a resident of Seaview Senior Living's Memory Care unit passed away early Monday morning at the hospital.

"This resident was an 88-year-old male who had pre-existing medical conditions, had been referred to Hospice and tested positive for Covid-19 but had no signs or symptoms of Covid prior to transfer to the hospital," Curry County Public Health said in a statement. "Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends."

The Oregon Health Authority also marked the Curry County death in its Friday report, but said that the patient was an 88-year-old woman. NewsWatch 12 is working to get clarification on this discrepancy.

Curry County has seen 56 positive cases since the pandemic began — including one presumptive case, 41 cases that are listed as "recovered," 14 active cases, one hospitalization and now one fatality.

Of those cases, 21 are either staff or patients of Sea View Senior Living, public health officials said.

"Please remember, it is important that we all follow the OHA and CDC guidelines and Governor’s directives about social distancing, wearing facial coverings in public buildings and protecting yourselves by staying home to slow the spread and save lives," the agency continued. "CCPH will continue to keep the public informed with all the information we can in order to keep our citizens safe."
