Please visit Washington State Department of Health website for statewide test reporting.
Note on the Number of Infections:
Public health experts agree that the true number of people who have been infected with COVID-19 greatly exceeds the number of COVID-19 infections that have been laboratory-confirmed. It is very difficult to know exactly how many people in the Tri County area have been infected to date since most people with COVID-19 experience mild or no symptoms.
|Case Count Last Updated: 11:30 am 05/29/2020||Ferry||Pend Oreille||Stevens||Total all Three Counties|
|Total # Confirmed Positive||1||3||11||15|
|Total # Negative||188||344||1046||1578|
Total # Confirmed Positive: Reports the total number of confirmed positive cases in Ferry, Pend Oreille and Stevens Counties. While deaths are reported separately this number would include any positive cases that also resulted in death.
Currently Hospitalized: Reports confirmed positive cases that are currently being hospitalized.
Recovered Cases: While we would like to be able to report on the number of recovered cases, we simply do not have a reliable or accurate way to track this data. Many individuals infected with COVID-19 show mild or now symptoms, will not require medical care, and are never tested. We do know that many of our confirmed cases are improving and being released from isolation, but without a uniform definition of the term "recovered" we can only accurately report confirmed cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.
