A COVID-19 case that had originally been assigned to Grays Harbor County has been re-assigned to Pierce County. With the reassignment of this case, Grays Harbor County’s case count is 13.

Washington State Department of Health assigns cases of COVID-19 to counties based on the person’s permanent residence.  A case may be re-assigned to another county because of new information about the person’s residence.

No new cases have been identified since May 7, when a patient at Pacific Care and Rehabilitation Center was diagnosed with COVID-19. All of the patients receiving care from Pacific Care have been tested for COVID-19 and all the results are negative.

The Grays Harbor County Incident Management Team continues to closely monitor local COVID-19 disease activity and support healthcare providers. The incident management team is also continuing to develop plans and resources that would allow the County to move forward in Governor Inslee’s phased approach to re-opening. An update on the team’s progress will be provided to the County Commissioners on Tuesday, May 12.
