Washington state

COVID-19 is on a path to runaway growth in Washington state. Friday DOH released the latest statewide situation report, which highlights alarming trends in transmission and hospitalization data. 

Transmission rates show accelerated spread of the virus across most of Washington, with Yakima as the one bright spot where the community is making progress on slowing the spread. 

A lot of attention has been put on the increased rates of infection among 20-29 year olds but that is starting to spread into all age groups, including children and teens. Read the report here.
