Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As I mentioned in a recent E-newsletter, the battle against COVID-19 has turned into a race to see how quickly we can vaccinate the majority of the population versus how quickly the more-transmissible variants can spread.  By continuing to mask up and maintain physical distance, we are increasing our chances of winning that race. 

As you’re probably aware, today is the day that all Washingtonians 16 and over became eligible to receive the COVID vaccines.  However, as described in this article in the Public Health Insider blog, the actual supply of vaccines still needs to catch up with the demand. 

Also, and importantly, the County’s FAQ page on the coronavirus has been completely updated as of yesterday.  It includes answers to questions on every aspect of the virus, including vaccines, precautions and information on reopening phases.

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at 

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
