VANCOUVER, Wa. – Clark County residents are asked to stay this weekend after a spike in COVID-19 positive tests.
“Clark County’s case numbers are going up. This is a dangerous time for gatherings,” said Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County health officer and Public Health director. “We cannot disregard physical distancing simply because it’s a holiday weekend.”
Public Health reports 40 new positive tests Wednesday.
That’s the highest number in a single day since the start of the pandemic.
The county is currently in Phase 2 of Washington’s reopening plan and has applied to move to Phase 3.
However, the county does not have a timeline to move forward.
