Whatcom County Washington - The CDC s COVID 19 dashboard shows Whatcom at low risk . The reality is more nuanced . 20 May 2022 ( news )

Whatcom County , state Washington

   You may have noticed that the CDC has moved Whatcom County back to ‘low’ on their COVID - 19 dashboard . The reality is that our case rates continue to hover on the border between low and medium based on CDC criteria . The agency’s dashboard currently shows Whatcom with a case rate of 171 . If we reach 200 cases or more , we would be back in the medium - risk category again .  
   We can’t predict the future , but our COVID - 19 cases may very likely go back up into the medium range , or even yo - yo back and forth ......for the next several weeks . Nobody wants another summer crushed by COVID - 19 . The choices you make now can really help us stop the spread of this disease:
   Get tested if you have symptoms or were exposed .
   Stay home if you are sick .
   Stay up to date with COVID - 19 vaccines and boosters .
   Wear a high - quality mask , like an N95 ( indoors , in public , and especially if you are at increased risk of serious illness ) .
   If you’re at increased risk of serious illness , remember that drugs to treat the virus are most effective if started soon after infection .
