Pacific County is in Phase 3 of the Healthy Washington: Roadmap to Recovery plan.
In order to stay in Phase 3, Pacific County must have less than 100 new cases over 14 days and less than 3 hospitalizations over 7 days. If we do not meet these metrics, our county will move back to Phase 2 or 1.
--New cases over the last 14 days: 9
--Active cases: 6
--Total cases since start of pandemic: 839
--New hospitalizations over the last 7 days: 1
--Total hospitalizations since start of pandemic: 28
--Total deaths since start of pandemic: 10
It will take all of us working together to ensure that Pacific County stays in Phase 3. We must continue to limit non-essential travel, maintain social distancing of at least six feet between persons, and practice personal protective measures to include: correctly wearing a mask/face covering in public, washing hands often with soapy water for at least 20 seconds, and avoid touching your face.
The current case rate per 100k over 14 days is 41.6.
Between February 22 and March 11, our county’s case rate increased dramatically - from 60.1 to 295.7. This increase was due to social gatherings.
Since March 11, our case rate has been decreasing. Keep up the good work, Pacific County!
