Under the revised plan for determining phasing of COVID-19 reopening, Klickitat and Skamania counties are joined with Clark, Cowlitz, and Wahkiakum counties. Klickitat County Public Health District Director Erinn Quinn says she’s sees some logic to the regional approach to take into account hospital bed usage in the larger counties where patients from this area are sent. But otherwise, she struggles with being tied to counties whose metrics have tended to not be as good as those in Klickitat County. She also says it makes messaging of the process to the community difficult. Metrics includes case rates per 100,000 residents over two weeks, COVID test positivity rates, hospital admissions, and average seven-day occupancy of intensive care unit beds.
