The pandemic generation

COVID-19 and this time of physical distancing is a pivotal event for our kids. They will always remember the year they didn’t go back to school. Their experiences now will color the way they see the world for their whole lives.

As we talk to our kids, we help them make meaning out of what they see and experience. We can influence how this pandemic shapes a generation.

In this new blog post from Washington Department of Health, you are invited to consider how this experience could shape our kids into critical thinkers, continuous learners, innovators, and compassionate community members.


Report unemployment fraud 

Washington State Employment Security Division (ESD) is warning people about fraudulent unemployment claims and scam websites designed to steal personal information.

Who do you stay home for?

Public Works employee Justin is staying home for his son. When we all stay home, we help protect the most vulnerable in our community. We can and will #BlockTheReboundKitsap.

Gov. Jay Inslee extended the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order through May 31. The state is using a phased approach for reopening. During Phase 1, residents should continue to stay home as much as possible, only leaving for essential needs or physically-distanced recreational activities.

Learn more about Safe Start plans and guidance for reopening.
