Covid update for GOLD
Cases of COVID-19 continue to accumulate in the area and so here is the latest data for COVID-19 in Grant, Okanogan, Lincoln, and Douglas (GOLD) counties.
Counties need an incident rate of 25 cases or fewer per population of 100,000 in the past 14 days to move forward a phase in the Washington Safe Start Recovery plan, and local counties are far from that goal.
