COVID-19

Klickitat County is currently in Phase 2 of the Governor’s phased approach to the "Safe Start" plan. You can read more about the phased approach here.

PHASE2

There are 5 key metrics for determining when a county can move through phases; COVID-19 activity, testing, healthcare system readiness, case investigation and contact tracing, and the protection of populations at higher risk. You can read more about these metrics and see how our county is assessed here.

We will update the case counts once daily Monday-Friday by 3:30 P.M.

Please note that there may be occasional but temporary discrepancies between COVID-19 case counts on the State and County website due to variances in reporting mechanisms. There may be occurrences when staff cannot update the chart by 3:30 P.M.

On May 21st the Board of Health made the unanimous decision to move from "zones" to cities/towns regarding the location of positive cases. Negative cases and total tests are now being reported by providers, Local Health Jurisdictions, and labs to the Washing State Disease Reporting system, because of this the negative case count has been removed from our table. For more accurate and up-to-date information on the total tests, please refer to the WA State DOH Dashboard.
