Department of Health releases long-term ForWArd plan to support ongoing COVID-19 prevention and readiness
Department of Health releases long-term ForWArd plan to support ongoing COVID-19 prevention and readiness

As Washington's COVID-19 response continues to evolve, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) released the state's new long-term ForWArd plan to keep people safe and healthy as we co-exist with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future.

To date, more than 13 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered across Washington, leading to one of the highest state vaccination rates in the country and helping the state maintain one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates among states. The ForWArd plan outlines ongoing actions that will allow communities and state leaders to prioritize prevention and readiness for this new phase of the pandemic.

The long-term response plan prioritizes engagement and empowerment of people so everyone has the necessary information and guidance to stay safe; prevention through vaccines, tests and masks; and system readiness that ensures public health leaders and providers can anticipate and respond to changing transmission trends.

"While we don't know when the pandemic will truly end, we do know how to protect ourselves and our communities from COVID-19. DOH is committed to following a path to recovery by empowering people, organizations, and businesses to come together to protect each other, keep our economy strong, our schools open, and our state moving forward," said DOH Deputy Secretary Lacy Fehrenbach.

Movement to stop the Naselle Youth Camp closure

On Friday, March 11 several people held a rally at the entrance to the Naselle Youth Camp. This camp relies on state funding to stay open, but the funding was written out of the budget by a small budget subcommittee. Both the House and Senate voted in favor of Representative Walsh's amendment which was put forth a few days before the subcommittee meeting. Governor Inslee is scheduled to make a decision by April 2 on the supplemental budget.

"The budget committee did not consider the economic damage they were doing to the Naselle area and school district," stated in a notice put out by the Naselle-Grays River Valley Education Association.
