A fourth person has died from COVID-19 in La Crosse County.

This is the second consecutive day the area’s dashboard shows a death.

No other information, again, was released or posted from the Coulee COVID-19 Collaborative between the La Crosse County Health Department, Gundersen Health System and Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse.

This is the third death this month. Aside from Thursday, a man in his 70s died Sept. 2, and another died back on July 17. The deaths Thursday and Friday are women in their 80s, the Tribune reported.
