Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery

SKAGIT COUNTY IS IN PHASE 2 (as of February 15, 2021)

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

In the Roadmap to Recovery, there are four metrics in total – two metrics that measure community disease levels (i.e., trends in case rates, test positivity) and two that measure health system capacity (i.e., trends in COVID-19 hospital admission rates , ICU occupancy). 

Three of the four metrics must be met in order to move forward from Phase 1 to Phase 2. 

  • Decreasing trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 cases per 100K population; 
  • Decreasing trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100K population; 
  • Average 7-day percent occupancy of ICU staffed beds less than 90%; and, 
  • 7-day percent positivity of COVID-19 tests less than 10% 

In order to remain in Phase 2, a region must continue meeting at least three of these four metrics. 

  • Decreasing or flat trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 cases per 100K population; 
  • Decreasing or flat trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100K population; 
  • Average 7-day percent occupancy of ICU staffed beds less than 90%; and,
  • 7-day percent positivity of COVID-19 tests less than 10% 

If a region in Phase 2 regresses and no longer meets any three or more of the metrics, the region – including all the counties within – will move back to Phase 1 on the following Monday. In sum, a region that meets three or four of the Phase 2 metrics will remain in phase 2. A region that meets zero, or only one or two of the Phase 2 metrics will move back to phase 1. 

Skagit County will be in the region classified as the North region along with Island, San Juan, and Whatcom counties. 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 (every two weeks).
