SPOKANE, Wash. — Health officials reported an additional 63 people testing positive for COVID-19 in Spokane County on Wednesday, marking the fourth consecutive day reported cases have stayed in the double digits. 

The Washington Department of Health reported a downward trend in cases statewide on Wednesday. The DOH also noted health data improving in eastern Washington, with the region’s reproductive number falling below 1 for the first time since the state began tracking data. When the number is below one, it means the pandemic is slowing.
