The Kittitas County Incident Management Team (IMT) has learned of an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 that was recently in attendance at the march for justice and equality protests in Ellensburg.
The IMT is in contact with the individual. The individual was wearing a mask while in attendance at the protests on June 1 and June 2.
If you were at the protests and you develop symptoms, please contact your healthcare provider. If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can contact the Temporary COVID Clinic at KVH at 509-933-8850. It is essential to maintain social distancing and wear face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
By wearing a face covering, the individual who tested positive that attended the protests mitigated potential exposure to anyone that was around them. We need everyone to mitigate the spread of COVID-19: wear a cloth face covering, maintain physical distance, stay home when you are sick, wash your hands frequently, and cover your cough.
Kittitas County currently has 90 cases of COVID-19. 76 of the 90 are recovered, which means that our county currently has 14 active cases of COVID-19.
If you have questions about your health, please contact your healthcare provider or you can call the Temporary COVID Clinic at KVH at 509-933-8850. If you are having a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the Emergency Department at KVH. If you have general questions about COVID-19, please call the EOC at 509-933-8315 or 509-933-8305.
