COVID-19 Update and Urgent Message from the Mayor Share

City of Mar­i­on and Grant County:

It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news of the first coro­n­avirus-relat­ed deaths in our com­mu­ni­ty. The TWO (cor­rect­ed 4/6/20) indi­vid­u­als’ deaths have been deter­mined to be caused by COVID-19. The total num­ber of Grant Coun­ty res­i­dents infect­ed by the virus is cur­rent­ly 19.

Please join me in pray­ing for the fam­i­lies and friends of the three human beings who did not sur­vive this pan­dem­ic. And con­tin­ue to lift those who have been infect­ed by the virus and are still in quarantine.

Last but not least, con­tin­ue to pray for our health­care work­ers, first respon­ders, and all the peo­ple who con­tin­ue to work dur­ing this pandemic.

Please stay home for the next 14 days. Don’t stay home because your gov­ern­ment is ask­ing you to stay home. Do it because it’s the right thing to do in these unprece­dent­ed times.

God bless us all!

Mar­i­on May­or Jess Alumbaugh
