Contact: Nicole Valentine, Director of Communications

SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County Public Health has confirmed the death of a Summit County resident due to COVID-19. The 49-year-old unvaccinated male with underlying conditions died on May 4.

“We are deeply saddened to experience another death in our community due to COVID. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones during this time,” said Public Health Director Amy Wineland. “We continue to urge our community members who have not yet gotten the life-saving vaccine to come to one of our free clinics. This is the best way we can protect ourselves and our loved ones.”

With the addition of this case, Summit County now counts eight deaths among cases of COVID-19. 

Summit County receives information on deaths among cases with COVID-19 from the state CEDRS database. Deaths due to COVID-19 come from CDPHE vital statistics. Based on what is written on the death certificate and in what order, a single underlying cause of death for vital statistics purposes is chosen based on an algorithm and sent back to CDPHE Vital Statistics. There is often a lag between when the death certificate is filed and when the causes of death are determined.

The data on the CDPHE website for deaths due to COVID-19 is directly from the National Center for Health Statistics Website (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/covid-19.htm).  

Summit County will not release any further information about this death.
