Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery

Click the tabs above to view the Phase 1, Phase 2, and Washington Vaccination Update.

Beginning on January 11, the state will follow a regional recovery approach with every region beginning in Phase 1. There will be eight regions of four or more counties, divided according to available health care services. Each region’s phase will be determined by the Department of Health in response to four metric requirements. The metrics for each region will be updated every Friday on the state’s COVID-19 Risk Assessment Dashboard beginning on January 8, and the plan will take effect on Monday, January 11. 

Skagit County will be in the region classified as the North region along with Island, San Juan, and Whatcom counties. To go forward from Phase 1 to Phase 2, regions must meet all four metrics:

  • Decreasing trend in two-week rate of COVID-19 cases per 100K population (decrease >10%)
  • Decreasing trend in two-week rate new COVID-19 hospital admission rates per 100K population (decrease >10%)
  • ICU occupancy (total — COVID-19 and non-COVID-19) of less than 90%
  • COVID-19 test positivity rate of <10%

To remain in Phase 2, regions must meet at least 3 metrics:

  • Decreasing or flat trend in two-week rate of COVID-19 cases per 100K population
  • Decreasing or flat trend in two-week rate new COVID-19 hospital admission rates per 100K population
  • ICU occupancy (total — COVID-19 and non-COVID-19) of less than 90%
  • COVID-19 test positivity rate of <10%.

Regions in Phase 2 that fail to meet two or more of the above metrics will be moved back to Phase 1. The metrics for each region will be updated on the Risk Assessment Dashboard every Friday. Dependent on a region’s metrics, DOH will move into a new phase — forward or backward — the following Monday.
