Live updates: COVID-19 case counts in North Central Washington

Note: COVID-19 testing rates obtained through the state Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard are now available on this page and will be updated weekly. 

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, health care providers, the state Department of Health to keep these counts as accurate as possible. 

For statewide, 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.

Community members play a vital role in slowing spread of the virus by practicing social distancing. Read more on that here.

Note: The Chelan-Douglas Health District reported an additional COVID-death to the total in Chelan County on June 21, a 50-year-old woman passed in June. The Chelan-Douglas Health District is reporting incidence rates and case counts once again. Testing rates and demographic data, however, are currently not being reported. Two COVID deaths from Chelan county were taken away as they are awaiting death certificates. Local health districts have stopped reporting new data on weekends. Weekend cases are being included in Monday updates. The Wenatchee World is now collecting local COVID-19 vaccination data, which is available on this page. Okanogan County's case history was updated Nov. 16 using New York Times data to include past antigen testing. Okanogan County is reporting several backfilled cases bringing total COVID cases up to 2541 on May 13. 

Made with Flourish

The state Department of Health does not include antigen tests in its main data dashboards. That makes it difficult for The World to compare local case counts — which include antigen and PCR tests — to other counties, which each collect and report tests differently. To see a thorough statewide comparison, see this map from The New York Times, which has both test types.
