Update (Jan. 5, 2021)

8 regions for Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery announced by Gov. Inslee 1/6/2021

A region's phase will be determined by the Washington state Department of Health (DOH) in response to four metric requirements. The final metrics for regions will be calculated on Jan. 8 and will be effective Jan. 11. The metrics for each region will be updated on the Risk Assessment Dashboard every Friday. Dependent on a region’s metrics, DOH will move into a new phase — forward or backward — the following Monday.

To move from Phase 1 to Phase 2, regions must meet all four metrics:

  • Decreasing trend of at least 10% in two-week rate of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population.
  • Decreasing trend of at least 10% in two-week rate of new COVID-19 hospital admission rates per 100,000 population.
  • Total ICU occupancy (COVID-19 and non-COVID-19) of less than 90%.
  • COVID-19 test positivity rate of less than 10%.

To remain in Phase 2, regions must meet at least three metrics:

  • Decreasing or flat trend in two-week rate of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population.

How can we prevent the spread of viruses?

The usual precautions for viruses apply for preventing spread of infection. They include:

  • Wash your hands frequently using soap and water for at least 20 seconds; and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
