Antigen Positive Test Results to Be Included with Daily COVID-19 Cases

Chehalis, WA – Beginning today, Lewis County Public Health & Social Services (LCPHSS) will include antigen positive COVID-19 results in COVID-19 case counts. This will include all positive antigen cases reported since June, when the first antigen test results were reported to the Washington State Department of Health (DOH). DOH started reporting antigen positive results as “probable cases” on their Data Dashboard on December 16, 2020. The increase in cases reported today is a one-time adjustment and not a reflection of increased COVID-19 activity in Lewis County. Download complete news release here.
