A second person in Jefferson County has died from COVID-19, according to public health officials.

Jefferson County's first reported death due to COVID-19 was reported in late November.

In announcing the first death in a Nov. 25 email, Jefferson County Public Health Officer Dr. Tom Locke said the woman who had died from the virus was in her 90s, was chronically ill and had been receiving hospice care.

County health officials reported Friday that 253 coronavirus infections have been confirmed in Jefferson County since the start of the pandemic.

I was at Costco in Sequim a few days ago and there were two women wearing masks but not covering their nose. An employee asked them to please pull up their masks over their noses and they said they "couldn't breathe" She then said she had to report they were in the store and asked again, but they just said, never mind we will just leave and were grumbling under their breath. The store employee did what store policy says, but of course these women refused he request. I thank her for doing her job. She was not rude to them, but was very calm. People like these two, are why we can't control this virus in America.

Would it have been so hard for them to pull up their masks?
