COVID-19 infection rates increase in six of Whatcom County’s seven regions last week

The Bellingham Herald

Six of seven Whatcom County school district regions saw their COVID-19 infection rates increase last week, as the entire county is seeing case counts tick up yet again.

Only the region covered by the Nooksack Valley School District had its rate decrease last week, according to the latest location data released by the Whatcom County Health Department Tuesday, July 20.

Fortunately, none of Whatcom’s six other regions saw particularly large gains in the number of new COVID cases per 100,000 residents over the past two weeks, but the Blaine region did sneak back into triple digits and the Meridian region saw its first COVID cases in three weeks.
