COVID-19 infections in Clark County schools are on the rise

Clark County schools reported 191 new cases of COVID-19 since last week, nearly tripling the number of new cases reported the week prior. This is the first time Clark County has seen consecutive weeks of notable case increases since the peak of the omicron variant in January.

Health officials have warned that the increased use of at-home tests and difficulties providing in-office tests mean that the true number of COVID-19 infections is likely to exceed the official statistics.

The following data is updated weekly on the Clark County Public Health website:

  • Evergreen Public Schools: 57 new cases between April 18 and 24.
  • Vancouver Public Schools: 50 new cases between April 20 and 26.
  • Battle Ground Public Schools: 11 new cases between April 16 and 22.
  • Camas School District: 40 new cases between April 17 and 23.
  • Ridgefield School District: 18 new cases between April 19 and 25.
  • Hockinson School District: two new cases between April 20 and 26.
  • La Center School District: three new cases between April 16 and 22.
  • Washougal School District: 10 new cases between April 20 and 26.
