Kittitas County recognizes that every death associated with COVID-19 means that someone in our county has lost a loved one. We appreciate that what is happening is more than numbers on a data dashboard. We want every individual to be acknowledged and we want the people in our county to know that our thoughts and hearts are with them.

We also realize the stress and emotional turmoil this outbreak is creating for families who have lost loved ones, families who are worried about losing their loved ones, employees and their family members, along with our community at large.

We regret to inform the community that another individual from a Long-Term Care Facility (Prestige) has died as a result of contracting COVID-19. Kittitas County now has 5 deaths associated with the outbreak at our Long-Term Care Facilities.

Please reach out to those individuals and families who are affected. Please continue to follow restrictions and guidelines in place to stay safe from COVID-19.
