COVID-19 continues spreading at a breakneck pace as hospitalizations climb statewide

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has released the latest statewide situation report on COVID-19 transmission.  

Report findings include:

  • COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly throughout the state. 
  • Daily case counts have skyrocketed in both eastern and western Washington. 
  • If disease transmission continues at the same pace observed early this month, by early December the number of daily hospital admissions could be double current numbers. 
  • Cases are increasing across all age groups, including older people, who are more likely to become seriously ill, require hospitalization and stay in a hospital for longer. 
  • Growth in cases is widely distributed across the state, with the majority of counties seeing accelerating rates. 
  • Even small counties are affected by the surge. 
  • The overall percentage of Washington state residents with active COVID-19 infection is higher than the peak in late March.

DOH partners with the Institute for Disease Modeling, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington and the Microsoft AI for Health program to develop these reports every other week. See the DOH news release for more details.


COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan update from the Washington State Department of Health

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) continues to make progress with COVID-19 vaccine distribution planning efforts.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received its first Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) application from a COVID-19 vaccine manufacturer on November 20. An EUA allows the FDA to make a product available during a declared state of emergency before it has a full license. See the DOH news release for more details.

We are hopeful we will have a vaccine to begin administering by mid-December. The federal government has given us an estimate of 62,400 doses of the Pfizer vaccine for our initial allocation. Learn more about the vaccine and the Washington State COVID-19 Vaccination Plan at
