Here are the latest COVID-19 numbers confirmed Monday in Washington state

The Washington State Department of Health reported 214 new COVID-19 cases Monday.

As of Monday, the state’s preliminary death tally was 12,355. The confirmed death tally as of March 4 was 12,240.

The state reported 451 cases Sunday and 1,012 cases Saturday.

The statewide case total from the illness caused by the coronavirus stood at 1,446,845 cases on Monday.

You can see it all over the state with people are eager to return to a normal, pre-COVID life.

“Today, they’re going great,” said Danelle San Jaylene of the Blazing Onion Restaurant in Gig Harbor. “We’ve been steadily busy moving forward with the mask mandate lifting. Our guests are happy, our team is happy. We’re thankful to be here to bounce back after the COVID-19. Everything has been great.”

The staff said some people are choosing not to wear face masks now that the state’s mandate has expired but some patrons are choosing to wear them.

“I would say it’s about a 40-60 ratio,” San Jaylene said. “You’ll still see people coming in with them, but our sign is very clear. We respect what is best for you and yours. If you choose to wear it, great. If you choose not to wear it, more power to you.”

The state revises preliminary data on a daily basis until it’s considered confirmed, sometimes lagging up to a month. It releases new data to the public on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It frequently reports problems in processing data in a timely matter.

Washington’s population is estimated at about 7.7 million, according to the latest U.S. Census figures.
