The Posey County Health Department said on Wednesday, Sept. 9, that a resident of the county had died from COVID-19.

According to PCHD, the county's first death wasn't listed in the Indiana State Department of Health's statewide Wednesday update and may take a few days to appear on the state health department's COVID-19 dashboard.

Six more Posey County residents on Wednesday were also confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19, which brought the county's total number of identified cases to date to 242.

PCHD said that the six individuals who on Wednesday were confirmed to have tested positive for the novel coronavirus were placed on strict home isolation and that anyone identified as a close-contact to the new positive cases would also be placed on a 14 day home quarantine.
