COVID-19 cases hit plateau in Clark County schools

By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County school districts are reporting 53 new cases of COVID-19 in the past week, a slight uptick from 51 cases last week. Weekly virus cases in schools had previously been experiencing a pattern of steep decline since late January.

Health officials have warned that the increased use of at-home tests and difficulties providing in-office tests means 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: Seven new cases between March 13 and March 20.

Vancouver Public Schools: 22 new cases between March 16 and March 22.

Battle Ground Public Schools: Four new cases between March 12 and March 18.

Camas School District: Nine new cases between March 13 and March 19.

Ridgefield School District: Three new cases between March 15 and March 21.

Hockinson School District: Seven new cases between March 16 and March 22.

La Center School District: No new cases between March 12 and March 18.

Washougal School District: One new case between March 16 and March 22.
