KITTITAS – Kittitas County is currently on day 2 of Phase 2. Per the Governor’s Phased Washington State Plan, we are required to stay in Phase 2 for a minimum of three weeks. During this time, how our responders and community come together to move to Phase 3 will determine our success.
We currently have 83 positive cases of COVID. The patients are stable at this time. 42 of the 83 are considered recovered, which means we have 41 current cases of COVID. The majority of the confirmed cases at this time are related to the Twin City Foods outbreak.
Our goal is to get to Phase 3 by June 17, 2020 in a safe manner (June 16 would be 21 days in Phase 2). To do that, we need to use the most effective tools we have to continue moving forward. Follow Phase 2 restrictions. Wear cloth masks. Protect our at risk population (pregnant, over 65, immunocompromised).
