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 and differences in reporting. All data is preliminary and may change.

  Jan. 20 update Change since Jan. 13 update
Total number of cases (confirmed & probable) 68,032 +9,651
Number of confirmed cases 58,603 +8,030
Number of probable cases 9,429 +1,621
Number of active cases* 6,039 -71
Number of deaths (confirmed and suspect) 639 +16
Rate of new cases per 100,000 population** 2,205.9 +526.8
Rate of new hospital admissions per 100,000*** 19.2 +7.4
 

Public Health will update all data weekly. Numbers are cumulative. Confirmed cases are people with a positive molecular (PCR) test for COVID-19. Probable cases are people with a positive antigen test and no molecular test. Antigen probable cases are updated to confirmed and no longer classified as antigen probable if a follow-up positive PCR test is completed. Antibody test results are not included in these totals. Additional information about COVID-19 deaths is available below.

*Number of active cases reflects the number of confirmed and probable cases currently in their isolation period. 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 of newly diagnosed cases per 100,000 people in the county over a two-week period. 

***Rate of new hospital admissions per 100,000 people in the county over a one-week period.

The state Department of Health's COVID-19 data dashboard offers more frequent updates to COVID-19 activity and hospitalization rates.

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

Updated January 21. 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. The state Department of Health's COVID-19 data dashboard offers more frequent updates. 

  • Dec. 16: 273.6 cases per 100,000
  • Dec. 23: 263.2 cases per 100,000
  • Dec. 30: 437.3 cases per 100,000
  • Jan. 6: 715.1 cases per 100,000
  • Jan. 13: 1,679.1 cases per 100,000
  • Jan. 20: 2,205.9 cases per 100,000

Vaccination status of Clark County residents

 

Updated Jan. 6. Data through Jan. 1, 2022. Data is preliminary and may change. Death data for the most recent weeks is incomplete due to reporting delays. Confirmed and antigen probable cases are included. Cases are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after completing the COVID-19 vaccine series (two doses for Pfizer or Moderna or one dose of Johnson & Johnson). Cases are considered partially vaccinated if they have initiated vaccination but do not yet meet the definition of fully vaccinated. Cases are considered unvaccinated if they have not received any doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccinated and partially vaccinated populations are determined by the number of residents who meet the definitions by the first day of the reporting week in the Washington State Immunization Information System.

COVID-19 associated deaths

Data continues to show that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death. Most COVID-19 deaths in Clark County continue to be among those who are not vaccinated. 

From Jan. 17, 2021 to Jan. 20, 2022, there were 462 COVID-19 deaths in Clark County. Of those:

  • 352 were unvaccinated prior to death
  • 15 were partially vaccinated at the time of death
  • 91 were fully vaccinated at the time of death (but no booster)
  • 4 were fully vaccinated and had received a booster at the time of death

 

“Unvaccinated” refers to people with no record of vaccination. “Partially vaccinated” refers to people who received at least one dose but had not completed their initial vaccination series. “Fully vaccinated” refers to people who completed their initial vaccination series (including 14 days after the final dose to reach full immunity). “Fully vaccinated and boosted” refers to people who completed their initial vaccination series and received a booster dose. Immunization status is based on records available in the state immunization database on Jan. 20, 2022.

Vaccine data

COVID-19 vaccine data is available on the Washington State Department of Health data dashboard.

Vaccine breakthrough

COVID-19 vaccines help to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. The vaccines continue to be highly effective at preventing severe illness that can lead to hospitalization and death, even among those infected with the delta variant.

A small proportion of people who are fully vaccinated may still get COVID-19, but infections in fully vaccinated people tend to be mild. Most COVID-19 cases continue to be among people who are unvaccinated. As more people become fully vaccinated, we'd expect to see the number of breakthrough cases increase.

When someone who is fully vaccinated – two weeks after the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine – contracts COVID-19, that’s called vaccine breakthrough.

Data on vaccine breakthrough cases is available in a weekly report from the Washington State Department of Health. The report is updated on Wednesdays.

 

Washington State Department of Health and Clark County Public Health track the number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths among people who are fully vaccinated. Data on breakthrough cases is compiled through state databases for COVID-19 cases and immunization records. Breakthrough data is preliminary and may change.

Here’s is the cumulative vaccine breakthrough data for Clark County:

Number of breakthrough cases 11,461
Number of breakthrough cases with symptoms 5,187
Number of breakthrough cases hospitalized 375
Number of breakthrough cases who died of COVID-19 79
Number of Clark County residents fully vaccinated 288,392
Percent of population 12+ fully vaccinated 67.9

Updated Jan. 21. This data is updated weekly. Data is cumulative since February 2021.

Vaccine breakthrough data is reported using linked state databases with COVID-19 case information and immunization records. Cases and deaths are reported once they are confirmed as vaccine breakthrough by the state Department of Health. COVID-19 deaths are reported after the death records are submitted to the state and recorded in the state database.


Schools data

Information about COVID-19 cases in local public schools is available on the COVID-19 cases in schools page.
