There has been interest in the community around the recent apparent spike in hospitalizations in Cowlitz County on the state DOH’s COVID-19 Risk Assessment Dashboard. It is important to note that those data are weekly totals that produce small numbers and erratic rates. We can make more useful conclusions about trends when we look at rates for longer time frames, such as two- or four-week averages. Based on those longer time frames, new COVID-19 hospital admissions among Cowlitz residents had been decreasing since late November but may have recently leveled off or even be increasing again. Underlying demographic trends will be included in future reports when we have enough data to draw meaningful conclusions. Overall, Cowlitz County’s new hospital admission rate continues to trend above the per capita state average.
For school operations
We are currently at a “High” level of COVID-19 community transmission.
For Roadmap to Recovery phase determination
Cowlitz County will revert back to Phase 2 this Friday, April 16, based on the Roadmap to Recovery plan’s metrics.
The next evaluation of these metrics will occur on Monday, May 3, with any changes implemented on Friday, May 7.
*The CDC case incidence figure is expressed in a 7-day time frame while the state Department of Health uses a 14-day time frame. Divide this figure by 2 to convert to the CDC figure.
