Health Officer Orders Cancellation of Clam Digging in Pacific County Until Further Notice

{South Bend, WA March 19, 2020}

On Thursday, March 19, 2020, the Pacific County Deputy Health Officer (“Deputy Health Officer”), Dr. Steven Krager, ordered that all clam digs in Pacific County, Washington be cancelled until further notice in order to mitigate the spread of COVID- 19. The prohibition on clam digging in Pacific County is in effect as of 12:01 AM on March 20, 2020 per the Health Officer’s Order, and remains in effect until further notice.

The Deputy Health Officer has determined that this step is now necessary in Pacific County in light of the increasing scope and severity of the threat that COVID-19 poses. Although no cases are confirmed in Pacific County at this time, the increasing instances of community spread in Washington State have influenced the decision.
