During the first week of October, the Pacific County Department of Health released data collected from hospitals where Pacific County residents with COVID are usually sent for treatment if they are sick enough to need hospitalization. Everyone familiar with Willapa Harbor Hospital and Ocean Beach Hospital knows that there is limited bed space and resources for COVID treatment.
"Our local hospitals do hospitalize people and can keep people, but what they can do is sort of limited," said PCDOH Director Katie Lindstrom. "A lot of times people get transferred out [of the county]."
This year there will be a Halloween event at the Pacific County Fairgrounds put on in partnership with the Teen Advocacy Coalition and Pacific Events District, so if you are looking for a child-friendly activity to do this year go to the Harvest Festival.

The event runs Friday, October 29 and Saturday, October 30 starting at 3:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Local food and craft vendors will be available both days of the event. Admission is free.
