The Tuesday, June 2, data from the Snohomish Health District begin the new week on a mixed note, showing fewer hospitalizations and a gain in overall recoveries, despite a one-day spike in caseloads and a corresponding gain in active cases.
After an encouraging weekend of low numbers of new cases (yellow chart), the past 24 hours showed a gain of 33 in this metric, the largest single-day addition in more than a week. Total Active Cases (red chart) went up by 12, bringing the total number of Snohomish County residents currently down with virus to 387. Note that despite the one-day gain, this is still the lowest active caseload since late March.

Monday saw the lowest hospital patient count (purple chart), since mid-March, with 31 currently hospitalized for treatment of COVID-19 one fewer than yesterday.
One additional COVID-related death (gray chart) was recorded since yesterday, bringing the total number of Snohomish County deaths over the full reporting period to 150, or 4.39% of the total number infected (confirmed plus probable).
