Coronavirus cases are reaching new heights in the most populated counties of Western Washington as Pierce County posted extremely high numbers of confirmed cases on Thursday. But officials are also reporting record numbers of COVID-19 cases in King, Pierce, Snohomish and Thurston counties, a result of what health officials warned was likely to happen as cooler weather forced people indoors. “That makes me feel nervous,” said Melissa Wolslegel, who lives in Pierce County. “I’d be stupid not to be nervous, right?” Wolslegel doesn’t like hearing that COVID-19 case numbers are soaring in Pierce County, which reported 187 cases Thursday after logging a record 214 cases on Wednesday. It means she will have to continue to stay isolated from family and friends and skip Thanksgiving holiday gatherings.
