Latest Health Department Update: Clark County COVID-19 Cases Surge


Vancouver, WA — COVID-19 virus activity continues to surge in Clark County and across the state, reported Clark County Public Health today. 

This week, virus activity in Clark County jumped to 288 cases per 100,000 over 14 days.

Points the health department is making about curbing the spread:

• Help slow the spread of the virus by staying home when you’re sick.

• Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, including those who are fully vaccinated or had COVID-19 in the past, should seek testing and stay home while awaiting test results. They should not gather with people they do not live with and should not go to work, school, church or other public places. 

• Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 should stay home and away from others until they complete their isolation period. For people with symptoms, that’s when they’ve been fever-free for at least 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine) and other symptoms are improving and at least 10 days have passed since symptoms began.

• If you need to be tested for COVID-19, contact your health care provider. If you do not have a provider or cannot access testing through your provider, check out the health department website for additional testing locations:
