July 26 COVID Chart

Skagit County Public Health reported 79 new cases of COVID-19 for the seven-day period running July 18 through July 24.

That number is the highest it's been since 97 new cases were recorded in back-to-back seven-day Sunday-through-Saturday periods in mid-May.

The 79 new cases broke of streak of five consecutive weeks in which the number was 31 or less.

The past seven-day Sunday-through-Saturday period also brought one more death (now a total of 79) and four new hospitalizations (now a total of 366).
