For the third day in a row, the County's Health and Human Services Agency is reporting record-high numbers of new Covid-19 infections. The measure states the increase should not be greater than 10%.

People between the ages of 18 and 40 made up the majority of confirmed cases with 44 percent; people between the ages of 41 and 60, 35 percent; people between the ages 61 and 80, 13 percent; people older than 81, 3 percent; and 4 percent have been younger than 18.

None were hospitalized. Four live in Commissioner District 1, which includes Centralia and surrounding areas, and one lives in District 3, which includes East Lewis County.

Riverside and Ventura counties also reported increases in COVID-19 hospitalizations, believed to be related to a variety of factors, including a rise in gatherings and outbreaks at skilled nursing facilities, officials said.

The latest fatality was a woman in her early 60s who had one or more underlying health conditions, the county said.

The number of COVID-19 deaths has remained at 37, according to the Spokane Regional Health District. 250 people have been released from isolation.
