Secretary of Health John Wiesman issued a Statewide Order (20-03) mandating the use of cloth face coverings in most public areas as of June 26, 2020. As of July 7, 2020 businesses are required to enforce the use of face coverings by all customers or clients. Click here for an overview of COVID-19 statewide face covering requirements. Visit the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) Cloth Face Coverings Webpage for additional rules that apply to employers and employees, resources and guidance for the general public and frequently asked questions related to masks and face coverings.

This is an evolving situation.  This page will be updated as more information is available.

Local Case Count

These numbers reflect Chelan and Douglas County residents only. As a regional health care center, residents from other counties may come to Chelan County for treatment and may be included in counts by health care providers that are different from those of the Chelan-Douglas Health District.

Notice on Recoveries: The only clear definition available for recovered cases is those who have had two negative tests at least 24 hours apart.  Locally, we have greatly expanded our testing capabilities but we do not yet have enough to test everyone repeatedly to get the end date of their infection.  Some areas just use the very approximate metric that patients are recovered after 30 days if they are alive and not hospitalized.  Of course, this is a very rough estimate at best. For this reason, both Washington State and Chelan-Douglas Health District choose not to report inaccurate recovery numbers. At the same time, with over 400 cases locally and 9 deaths, it is obvious that hundreds of people in our counties have recovered from COVID-19 infections and this is a very hopeful sign. Recovery is what happens for almost everyone who gets this disease. As testing capacity and knowledge of the course of infection improves, we may be able to start reporting meaningful numbers on recovered cases in the future.

Please note: data will be updated on a daily basis (Monday-Friday). Last updated: 7/8/20 at 6:30 a.m.
