Community News

Skagit County Public is now reporting seven confirmed cases of COVID-10, including one person hospitalized. And, the county says there is more transmission of novel coronavirus in the county than the confirmed case count indicates.

Confirmation of cases through laboratory screening is not able to keep pace with ongoing community transmission. As has happened in other counties in Washington State, the virus keeps spreading from person to person as we continue to have close contact with others.

Public Health is asking all Skagit County residents to do what they can to slow the spread of COVID-19, which will mean serious disruption to daily life. Local businesses and service providers have made big changes to their operations to limit close personal contact.

Public Health is asking that everybody do this in their personal lives as well. Although many public activities and events have been suspended, it is important that we postpone or cancel social activities too. With school out and some businesses experiencing temporary closures, this is not a time to expand family visits and social gatherings.
