CDC ups Thurston County COVID Level to ‘Medium’

COVID cases up to 200 per 100k people

By Thurston County Health Officer Dr. Dimyana Abdelmalek via JOLT News:

“Our COVID-19 transmission rates continue to rise and we are seeing an increased number of COVID-19 outbreaks in Thurston County. Yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changed the COVID-19 Community Level for Thurston County from Low to Medium due to the 7-day COVID-19 transmission rate increasing to more than 200 cases per 100K population. At this community level there are additional recommendations for people at high risk of severe disease as well as the general public.

“People at who are immunocompromised or have other risk factors for severe disease should consider wearing a mask in public indoor spaces and have a plan for rapid testing if needed (this could be home test kits or access to testing). People who have contact with people who are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease should consider testing for COVID-19 before contact and wearing a mask when indoors with them.”
