Kittitas County, WA -
The Kittitas County Public Health Department (KCPHD) is receiving significant numbers of positive COVID-19 positive case results and expects these high numbers to last at least through January, which requires KCPHD to prioritize our response.
KCPHD asks anyone who has recently tested to please assume that you are positive for COVID-19 unless you are notified otherwise. Please utilize the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) website under COVID-19 Resources and Recommendations to read about what to do if you are positive with COVID-19 or if you believe you have been exposed.
If you tested at a location that uses Labcorp, such as Kittitas Valley Healthcare (KVH), you may visit https://www.labcorp.com/frequently-asked-questions/patient/testing-information/all to create an account and view results online. The Labcorp link also provides additional information about when results should be ready and what to do if you are unable to access your results. Individuals who have signed up to use the KVH patient portal can also access test results via the KVH portal.
KCPHD will prioritize contacting positive COVID-19 cases that are most likely to be associated with broader transmission or outbreaks.
KCPHD personnel will also continue to work very closely with schools and students in order to keep schools as safe as possible.
Please practice good hygiene, wear a proper face covering, and stay home when you are sick. The COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone 5 years of age and older. The booster is available to everyone 16 and older and will soon be available to everyone 12 years of age and older. Please use vetted websites such as Washington State Department of Health (DOH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with the Washington State COVID-19 website for more information regarding COVID-19.
