Clark County clocks 17 COVID-19 cases

By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County Public Health confirmed 17 COVID-19 cases and no new deaths Friday afternoon.

The county has 758 confirmed cases and 29 deaths. At least 12,089 people have been tested for coronavirus in Clark County.

There are nine people hospitalized for the virus in Clark County.

The rate of newly diagnosed cases per 100,000 population over the last two weeks dropped to from 17 to 13.9 on Friday, most likely because a 32-case day in early June fell out of the 14-day window.

The state has a target of fewer than 25 newly diagnosed cases per a 100,000 population over two weeks as part of Phase 3 applications.

Clark County meets that metric, and most of the other metrics for Phase 3. The county plans to submit its Phase 3 application by the end of the day, and approval or denial should come by early next week.

Starting today, face-coverings are required in Washington in all indoor public places as well as outdoor public places where physical distancing guidelines can’t be met.

CRESA Emergency Management is distributing more than 216,000 cloth face coverings low-income individuals and families, according to an agency news release.

Any agency or group working with people experiencing homelessness in Clark County and in need of face coverings can contact info@councilforthehomeless.org to make a request.

Washington has 30,367 confirmed coronavirus cases and 1,300 deaths.
