Woman Visiting Family Tests Positive for COVID-19

A woman in her 20’s visiting Mason County from out of state has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) and her case increases the County’s total COVID-19 cases to 43. There are now three active cases in Mason County.

If you are showing symptoms for COVID-19, early testing is encouraged. At the earliest signs of symptoms please reach out to the Respiratory illness triage line at 360-427-3615. They can assist you in scheduling an appointment at Mason Health’s Drive Thru COVID-19 testing.

Due to Mason County being a small community, location data of positive cases will not be released to reduce the possibility of patient identification and to protect personal health information. Identified positive cases are located throughout Mason County. Mason County Public Health is asking that the public do their part to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Now that Mason County is in phase three of Governor Inslee’s Safe Start plan, more businesses and recreational activities are available. Please continue to socially distance, keeping a minimum of six (6) feet distance between yourselves and others. And face coverings will be mandatory in Washington State beginning Friday.
