News Release- Two New Positive COVID-19 Cases in Pend Oreille County

Northeast Tri County Health District (NETCHD) was notified today, May 23, 2020, of two new positive COVID-19 cases for Pend Oreille County. Both individuals live in South Pend Oreille County. 

NETCHD staff are working now to investigate each case and will be reaching out to potential close contacts. These individuals will be given additional guidance and advised of precautions they should take. 

With many neighboring counties now moving to Phase 2, we will most likely see more out of town visitors coming to recreate in our tri county areas. In efforts to prevent potential exposure in our communities we are asking businesses, patrons, and members of our communities to take the following precautions as we go into the Memorial Day weekend:

  • When around others, practice social distancing and wear cloth face coverings
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Higher risk individuals are encouraged to stay home if possible
