Grays Harbor COVID-19 Update: New Case Identified

Submitted by Grays Harbor County Public Health and Grays Harbor County Emergency Operations Center

Grays Harbor Public Health was notified of a new case of COVID-19 June 26. Public Health staff have completed the case investigation and have contacted close contacts.

COVID-19 has impacted all parts of Grays Harbor County and new cases will continue to be diagnosed.  Up to 25% of people infected with COVID-19 do not experience symptoms.  As summer travel to our communities increases, it is increasingly impossible to know where and when you may be exposed to the virus.  It is therefore essential to continue to limit the number of people you have contact with, practice physical distancing, wash your hands frequently, and wear face coverings in public.

Compared to many other counties in western Washington, Grays Harbor County has experienced a low number of cases.  Limiting travel and contact with others outside your household can help our whole community by slowing the spread of the virus, especially to people who are at risk of serious disease.
