LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WKBW) — A 22-year-old Niagara County woman with underlying health conditions has died of COVID-19, according to the Niagara County Health Department.

A county update emailed to the media Friday morning stated the woman had no underlying health conditions. At 2:09 p.m., Niagara County Public Information Officer Kevin Schuler sent another email stating she did have underlying health conditions.

"The original update was incorrect in stating she had no such conditions. Our apologies for the mistake," Schuler said.
