As of December 30, there have been 10 confirmed cases associated with Camp 210 and Base camp, the shelter operated by Lighthouse Mission Ministries. We will update this number only when additional cases are confirmed.
The first cases of COVID-19 were identified among people at Base Camp, the emergency shelter operated by Lighthouse Mission Ministries, and Camp 210, the tent encampment at Bellingham’s City Hall in late November 2020. Since the first cases were identified, we’ve been working with the City of Bellingham, Lighthouse Missions Ministries, and Camp 210 volunteers to respond and minimize COVID-19 risks to everyone involved.

At this time, there are no signs that there is a greater risk from COVID-19 at Camp 210 than at other locations or in other populations in Whatcom County.
