By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County Public Health confirmed 23 new coronavirus cases Wednesday morning.

Since the start of the pandemic, Clark County has recorded 3,026 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 53 deaths connected to the virus.

Clark County has a COVID-19 activity level of 69.4, which places it in the “moderate” range for school reopening based on the number of new cases per 100,000 population over a 14-day period.

Clark County’s COVID-19 activity is up from the previous two weeks.

Local schools are utilizing remote learning at the moment, but could have in-person learning this school year if Clark County can decrease the amount of coronavirus community spread.

Health officials want to see activity levels remain in the moderate category for at least three weeks in a row after the Labor Day weekend before considering relaxing restrictions.

The number of active cases in Clark County rose from 128 active cases Tuesday to 137 active cases Wednesday.

There are 22 COVID-19 cases hospitalized in Clark County, and nine people hospitalized who are awaiting test results.

Washington surpassed 2,000 COVID-19 deaths on Tuesday. The state has clocked 2,015 deaths related to the virus, since January.

Washington has more than 80,000 confirmed cases.
