(Updated 1/28/23)

Community transmission of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is occurring in Skagit County. Skagit County Public Health only tracks COVID-19 cases of Skagit County residents to avoid duplication in reporting. Facilities in our community may be caring for patients who are from another county.

Data is based on available information at time of reporting. Further case investigation can result in corrections to numbers originally reported. This data is changing rapidly as labs conduct tests and discover new cases.

For more comprehensive COVID-19 related data, please refer to the statewide COVID-19 Data Dashboard.

If you need further assistance navigating the Data Dashboard, please call the state COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-525-0127 or text the word “Coronavirus” to 211211 to receive information and updates on your phone wherever you are. Updates to the Dashboard are made every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, except on state holidays.
