Why didn’t Governor Jay Inslee look at our South Central data for new hospitalizations and think something was wrong: the Washington State Department of Health didn’t review the information and see any discrepancy, which prevented the only state region from moving to Phase 2 Thursday, Feb. 11.

The only officials who immediately recognized the data was inaccurate and that here was something wrong in the reporting – were our Yakima County Commissioners and Health District officials.
