MOSES LAKE – On Friday, Grant County’s Health District (GCHD) reported 68 new cases, the most seen in a 24-hour period in quite some time.
“The situation on COVID-19 transmission locally, statewide, and nationwide is not good. This virus is spreading quickly, with hospitalizations and deaths rising along with daily cases,” GCHD stated on its Facebook page.
As a result, Grant County is asking its residents to stay at home and only celebrate with those you live with.
“We know this will be hard. It’s hard for us too. We miss spending time with family and friends, but this year is not a “normal” year. We are hoping that by skipping the big gatherings this year, we’ll prevent infections and be able to have them next year.”
On Thursday, the Chelan-Douglas Health District reported 92 new cases in a 24-hour period and 578 new cases in 14 days.
On Friday, Adams County reported 24 new coronavirus cases.
