County concerned about Covid-19 trends


The number of Covid-19 cases in Whatcom County is not trending in the right direction. Whatcom County has seen an increase of new Covid-19 cases since September 8, defying a downward trend in new Covid-19 cases statewide.

According to a report released earlier this week by the state department of health, Covid-19 activity is decreasing. 

Whatcom County continues to experience increasing positive cases of Covid-19. In the period between September 8 and September 19, there were 114 cases for a total of 1,264.

“Our cases are trending the wrong direction,” said Erika Lautenbach, director of the county health department. “For the sake of our friends, neighbors and co-workers, it is vital that we continue to do all we can to prevent and mitigate the spread of Covid-19.”
