Randolph County is listed as having one C19 death, though that was a former county resident who was living in a nursing home in another county. The nationwide norm is to “credit” C19 deaths to the place where they most recently maintained a homeplace. Apparently, nursing homes don’t count.
The first county C19 case was confirmed March 26, 2020.
