The Yakima Health District reported 44 additional coronavirus cases Friday, with no new deaths.

Ten people were hospitalized Friday, with one intubated.
As of Friday, 28,658 people have recovered.
Yakima County is in Phase 3 of the state’s coronavirus reopening plan. Phase 3 allows up to 50% occupancy or 400 people maximum, whichever is lower, for all indoor spaces. Indoor gatherings of up to 10 people and outdoor gatherings of up to 50 people are permitted.
The next evaluation will be Monday, with an announcement from the state on Tuesday. Any changes will take effect Friday, May 7.
To remain in Phase 3, Yakima County must meet at least one of two metrics: new COVID-19 cases below 200 per 100,000 residents over two weeks, or a seven-day average of new COVID-19 hospitalizations below five per 100,000.
Yakima County had 250.6 cases per 100,000 people from April 8-21. During the last evaluation, it had five new COVID-19 hospitalizations per 100,000 over the seven days.
