This week, Washington State Department of Health changed its COVID-19 data reporting to once a week. Starting next week, we will move our data report to Thursdays to align with that reporting.
On Nov. 1:
- Our current COVID-19 7-day case rate per 100,000 is 47.2 for October 16-22.
- Our current 7-day hospitalization rate per 100,000 is 2.9 for Oct. 14-20.
Because of an issue with the Electronic Laboratory Reporting system, this data is likely incomplete.

- A woman in her 90s from Gig Harbor.
