The Klickitat County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) states one new case of COVID-19 in the county was confirmed this morning.

In a statement issued this evening, the EOC emphasized it continues to work to ensure community members are informed with accurate and current information along with additional tips to stay healthy.

A service program “Operation Stay Home - Stay Healthy Delivery Service” began as planned on Friday, March 27. Partnering agencies and first responders are assisting with this program in the county. This service is intended for members of our community in quarantine (may have been exposed to COVID-19), isolation (have tested positive for COVID-19), high risk, and vulnerable populations. (See Sentinel story on our COVID-19 page entitled "Holcomb's Market to join Market Fresh in curbside grocery pick-up.")

To access this service, people who meet the above criteria can call (509) 493-2662 or (800) 755-1192 for guidance. The call center will work with the customer to determine which store to call from the participating stores. The customer will then order groceries via that store’s specific systems and requirements. Following order placement with the assigned store, the customer will contact the call center again to notify them of order pickup details for pick-up and delivery of groceries.

There are care packages that are being delivered to those in need. The school systems are offering food pickup and delivery; businesses are offering more food-to-go options; and the medical facilities and pharmacies are assisting the community in providing the best care possible.

Yesterday Gov. Jay Inslee updated guidance on funerals and real estate transactions to give a clearer understanding of what is allowed and not allowed under the current restrictions.
