It is with great sadness the City of Beaumont Public Health Department (BPHD) has to report a 5th COVID-19 related death of a Beaumont resident. The male patient was between the ages of 41 and 50.

Again, this is an important reminder that COVID-19 is a very serious disease. While 80% of individuals who contract COVID-19 will have mild to moderate symptoms and fully recover, they may spread the disease to people who are at high risk. Older adults, people of any age with underlying medical conditions and people with weakened immune systems, are at a much higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19. We strongly advise at-risk individuals to minimize contact with others who are ill and practice social distancing.
