Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery

Yakima County is in Phase 3 

Yakima County is in Phase 3 of the "Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery." Counties will now be individually evaluated every three weeks under two metrics. 

Metrics graphic

Yakima County will need to meet the two metrics under the "Larger County" category to remain in Phase 3. If at any point the ICU capacity reaches 90% or higher statewide, then all the counties will need to move back one Phase.

A region's phase is determined by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) and will be updated every three weeks. For more information on the DOH metric requirements and the current status of each region, click on the Roadmap to Recovery dashboard below.
