Data Summary

Local Yakima Health District (YHD)  Data is 24-48 hours ahead of Department of Health (DOH) data. COVID-19 Data Dashboards are based on DOH data.  

Death data differs between DOH and YHD. YHD reports anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 AND died due to complications related to COVID-19. DOH reports anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 and died.

DATA NOTE: Currently, local numbers are not matching numbers reported by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH). All Dashboards are populated with information from the DOH and as such will not be completely aligned with local numbers. YHD is working on identifying the discrepancy.
