Case updates July 22, 2020; Yakima county doing well - the rest of the state not so much

Bad news/good news
 
Yakima provides a glimmer of hope. The Yakima Health Department reported recently that 95% of people in Yakima are wearing a face covering in public. 

Yakima County is the only place in the state right now where each person who gets COVID-19 on average spreads it to less than one other person. 

Everywhere else in the state is on the path to runaway transmission rates of COVID-19. Read the full blog post from DOH here.
