The novel coronavirus has killed at least 12 people in Douglas County as of April 9, according to data from the Tri-County Health Department and the county coroner.

Those who have died have ranged in ages from 52 to 91, Coroner Jill Romann said. 

While there may have been additional people who have died of COVID-19 in Douglas County hospitals, they are not included in this count unless they were residents of the county.

Three of the deaths of seniors have come from the Vi at Highlands Ranch senior living community, Romann said. It wasn't clear from which part of the facility the residents lived. A representative from Vi could not immediately be reached for comment.
