Kittitas County, WA -
The Kittitas County Community Impact Dashboard will be changing today. In addition to confirmed cases, recovered, and active cases, the dashboard will now include bubbles on the map portion to indicate number of cases per municipality along with other areas. The change is in response to multiple requests for the information and the assertion from the public that behavior would change if people knew there were cases of COVID-19 in their community.
The municipalities include Cle Elum, South Cle Elum, Ellensburg, Kittitas, and Roslyn, along with other areas to include Ronald and Thorp. There will be no number listed on each municipality, but the bubble size will represent the volume of cases in each area. The information will also include not only the active cases, but all cases that have occurred since COVID-19 was first diagnosed in Kittitas County. To date, the largest number of cases continues to be in Ellensburg, because of the outbreak at Twin City Foods.
Because of low numbers of active cases at certain times in certain areas, we will not be listing just active cases on the map in the dashboard. This is to prevent providing confidential information to the public.
