COVID-19 data

Clark County Public Health data may differ from numbers on the Washington State Department of Health website, due to delays in reporting. Public Health data is the most up to date. All data is preliminary and may change.

For statewide data, visit the Washington State Department of Health data dashboard. For the latest information on cases in the U.S., visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

Number of positive cases 8,841
Number of active cases* 397
Number of deaths 91
Rate of new cases per 100,000 population** 359.26
 

Numbers updated Nov. 30. Public Health will update these numbers by noon Monday through Friday. Numbers are cumulative. The number of positive cases reflects the number of individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. People with multiple positive tests are only counted once. Antibody test results are not included in these totals.

*Number of active cases reflects the number of confirmed cases currently in their isolation period. Confirmed cases remain in isolation until they are fever-free for at least 24 hours (without fever-reducing medication) and symptoms have improved and at least 10 days have passed since symptoms began. People who test positive but do not have symptoms are in isolation for 10 days from the date of their first positive test.

**Rate updated Nov. 24. This rate will be updated once a week. Rate of newly diagnosed cases per 100,000 people in the county over a two-week period. The two week period starts six days prior to the current date to account for the lag in reporting. 

This graphic shows the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Clark County, by the date the case was verified. Numbers for the most recent days may change as results for those tests become available.

Updated Nov. 24. This graphic will be updated weekly.


COVID-19 activity

COVID-19 activity is determined by calculating the number of new cases per 100,000 residents in the county over 14 days. Public Health calculates the current COVID-19 activity level in Clark County once a week and posts the updated rate on the website every Tuesday.

Current COVID-19 activity high

The rate calculated by Public Health may differ from the rate calculated by the Washington State Department of Health, due to delays in data reporting.

Public Health data is the most up to date and will be used by Public Health and Clark County school districts when making decisions about schools. Visit Public Health's COVID-19 recommendations webpage for schools recommendations. 

Long-term care facilities should use the Clark County Public Health rate for their Safe Start for Long-Term Care plans.

Updated Nov. 24. Data to date and for each of the most recent six weeks for which data is available. Clark County Public Health collects testing data from Washington State Department of Health and local providers to determine total test numbers and positivity rates in Clark County. This data includes all negative tests, including multiple negative tests for the same individual. Data is preliminary and may change.

*Test data through Nov. 7.


Likely sources of exposure

Clark County Public Health interviews every person who tests positive for COVID-19. As part of the interview, Public Health asks the person where they were and whom they were around in the 14 days before symptoms began. This information is used to determine where the person was likely exposed to the virus.

The data on likely sources of exposure is limited. The interview process is voluntary. Not everyone who tests positive participates or can remember everywhere they were prior to getting sick. And not all cases can be connected to a likely source of exposure.

When Public Health lists a location as a likely source of exposure that means:

  • The case had close contact with a previously known case at that location during the time the previously known case was contagious OR
  • The case is one of several cases who report being at the same location during a specific time and have no other known exposure to someone with COVID-19. This indicates there may have been someone who was contagious at that location who infected others.

Public Health is providing data on the likely sources of exposure for COVID-19 cases in the most recent month.
