PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — For the first time since the pandemic began, the state of Washington reported more than 1000 new case in a single day.

In a late afternoon tweet, Gov. Jay Inslee said the Washington Department of Health reported the dubious milestone on Monday. The overall total in Washington state is nearly 37,000 cases with 1370 deaths.

Additionally, the positive rate from testing is now 5.9% in Washington.

On Monday, the Oregon Health Authority reported that positive cases from tests jumped to 5.3%, meaning there are more people with COVID-19 since all Oregon counties have reopened to some degree.
