UPDATE: On May 21st the Board of Health made the unanimous decision to move from "zones" to cities/towns regarding the location of positive cases. Negative cases and total tests are now being reported by providers, Local Health Jurisdictions, and labs to the Washing State Disease Reporting system, because of this the negative case count has been removed from our table. For more accurate and up-to-date information on the total tests, please refer to the WA State DOH Dashboard.

UPDATE: Public Health previously reported 25 cases. As of 12:15 on 5/19/20, through further case investigation, it was determined the previously reported case number 25 is a Yakima County resident.
