Clark County Public Health announced one new COVID-19 case Friday morning.

The county added six cases Monday including totals from over the weekend, one case Tuesday, four cases Wednesday and three cases Thursday.

There are 10 people hospitalized for the virus in Clark County with three people in the intensive care unit.

At least 5,695 people have been tested in Clark County. There are 71 cases among long-term care facility staff and residents.

Public Health released specific data for case counts in ZIP codes. The 98682 ZIP code has 50 cases, the most in the county. The 98662 ZIP code, with the second-highest count, has 47 cases.

According to state Department of Health data from Wednesday, there were at least 393 people hospitalized for COVID-19 in Washington with at least 122 people in an ICU.
