Harvey County

The Harvey County Health Department has confirmed three deaths of Harvey County residents attributed to COVID-19. The residents include a female in her 80s, a male in his 70s and a male in his 60s. Our condolences to the family and friends of all three of these residents.

These deaths are unrelated to each other. Our announcements of the deaths as COVID-19-related were delayed until we received confirmation from the medical providers overseeing patient care that COVID-19 was listed as a cause of death on their death certificates. Sometimes that process can take a while. But in other words, we wait until we can be sure the death will be defined as a COVID-19 death.

Additionally, the Health Department has confirmed three new cases of COVID-19 in the county. The confirmed cases include:

▪️ A female in her 40s. She had known out-of-state travel.
▪️ A female between 10-and-19 years old. This case is under investigation.
▪️ A male in his 30s. He was in contact with another individual with COVID-19 in another county.

We have had 342 COVID-19 cases to date, including 336 confirmed and six probable cases. There are nine known active cases in Harvey County. None of these individuals are currently hospitalized. There have been 5,053 people tested for COVID-19 for our county.

These statistics are also available on our website: www.harveycounty.com/covid19stats

As of today, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment confirmed 55,226 cases in the state to date, including 2,766 hospitalizations and 621 deaths. The KDHE reported 492,281 completed tests in the state.
