COVID-19 (coronavirus) Information
Skagit County Update
- With the increasing presence of delta variant in our state, it is important that you get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible. This is the best way to protect yourself against becoming critically ill.
- The Delta variant may cause more serious illness in younger adults as well as older people. It is recommended that people who may be at higher risk of developing COVID-19 continue to wear their mask when indoors, regardless of vaccination status. For those who are unvaccinated, please—continue to wear your mask when in indoor public settings and when gathering with others.
