The county reports there are now 14 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Skagit County residents, with no reported deaths. Two Skagit County residents are hospitalized. The latest statewide figure is 1,187 cases with 66 deaths recorded. Fifty-six of those are in King County.

The state says more than 17,000 people have been tested. Of those, 1,187 were positive and 15,918 negative.

Public health experts agree that the true number of people who have been infected with COVID-19 in Washington greatly exceeds the number of COVID-19 infections that have been laboratory-confirmed.

It is very difficult to know exactly how many people in Washington have been infected to date since most people with COVID-19 experience mild illness and the ability to get tested is still not widely available.

Skagit County Public Health says due to an increase in cases and a need to prioritize contract tracing, Public Health will no longer be providing more detailed information on cases.
