NCW — This page will be regularly updated as new COVID-19 cases in North Central Washington are reported by health officials.
The Wenatchee World uses reports from county health districts and local health care providers to keep these counts as accurate as possible. Most local results are updated around 5 p.m. daily.
For statewide perspective, see this page from The Seattle Times. For national and global perspective, see this page from The New York Times. New local cases may take a couple days to be reflected in state or national databases.
Health officials expect the number of confirmed cases to increase as testing continues in the region. Tracking positive cases will allow health officials to better monitor community spread of the virus, they said.
Community members play a vital role in slowing spread of the virus by practicing social distancing. Read more on that here.
Note: Local health districts have stopped reporting new data on weekends. Weekend cases are being included in Monday updates.
Due to the increase in case counts, some health districts have stopped reporting pending cases, negative results or total cases.
