COVID cases accelerating in county, state

According to Grays Harbor County Public Health, as of Friday, July 23, since the pandemic began last February, about 275 COVID-19 cases have been reported on the North Beach. With by far the biggest population, Ocean Shores had the highest number of cases — but the 176 cases reported does not include tourists/visitors or part-timers, as the data is linked to home ZIP codes. Taholah shows 64 cases — meaning 7% of the population of 942 have had the virus. By contrast, using an approximate population of 6,000, about 3% of Ocean Shores’ permanent residents have had the coronavirus. Ocean City, Copalis Beach and Pacific Beach are around 5%.

With 4,373 total COVID cases, about 6% of the county’s 75,000 residents have tested positive for the disease. The rate per 100,000 over the last week in the county is 135 COVID-19 cases, up sharply from 113 per 100,000 over a two-week period.

State-wide, COVID is accelerating at a disturbing pace: over a two-week period, there were 96 cases per 100,000; over the last week, that has nearly doubled, to 165 cases per 100,000.

    What did you think would happen??? We have a huge 4th of July and everyone took their masks off and gathered in close quarters and dining went back to 100%, and the non vaccinated took their masks off along with the vaccinated. Then 10-14 days later… You wonder why the numbers of Covid are increasing? It is called incubation time. Its all for the businesses. Took bad locals.
