Thurston, Lewis, Grays Harbor among WA counties where CDC again recommends masks

From the Associated Press:

People in six Washington counties should again wear masks indoors in public and on public transportation, according to recommendations from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The latest information from the CDC shows that Thurston, Lewis, Grays Harbor, Pacific, Garfield and Spokane counties all have COVID-19 community levels rated “high,” meaning they have had 200 or more new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in the last seven days, or they’ve had more than 20 new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100,000 people within a seven-day period.


The CDC said anyone at risk for severe illness in those six counties should consider taking additional precautions besides simply wearing a mask, like staying 6 feet away from others, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and washing their hands often. Thurston County added 616 COVID-19 cases during the week of June 20-26 as the death toll for the pandemic reached 397.
