Sheriff John Snaza has been recovering well and has now been moved out of intensive care and into the general recovery floor. Last Monday, he was taken off of a respiratory assisting machine and spoke on his own. He was upgraded from critical to serious and will remain hospitalized until he is in good condition.
"This is wonderful news for this progression of full recovery," said Lt. Tim Rudloff of the Thurston County Sheriff's Department. Rudloff said the department would update on social media once a week on how the Sheriff is recovering.
