COVID-19 lab fees waived

State Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler issued an emergency order protecting consumers from receiving unexpected bills for COVID-19 lab fees. The emergency order recognizes that out-of-pocket financial costs may create barriers to COVID-19 testing and a challenge for public health's ability to track and reduce disease activity.


Inslee extends eviction moratorium

Gov. Jay Inslee extended protections for renters today as COVID-19 continues to impact the finances of Washingtonians statewide.

Proclamation 20-19.2 extends the prior eviction moratorium for 60 days (through August 1), and makes modifications to the prior moratorium. The proclamation also encourages landlords and tenants to communicate in good faith with one another, and to work together on the timing and terms of payment and repayment solutions.

Getting “The Right Stuff” to fight COVID 

If you’re going to do battle, you need the right stuff. In Army slang, that’s “beans and bullets.” In a medical emergency, it’s masks, gowns, ventilators, test kits, and everything else needed to keep doctors, nurses, and first responders doing their jobs safely.

The people who get these vital supplies are known as logisticians - and their battle takes place almost entirely out of public view. Logisticians working in the Kitsap County EOC have put in thousands of hours during the COVID crisis getting medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) for all of those charged with responding during the crisis. 

In the past two months, logisticians have carried out a critical public safety mission in Kitsap County, distributing more than a quarter-million items of PPE for the county’s official emergency responders. No one knows how many cases of coronavirus have been avoided because logisticians managed to find and distribute the right safety equipment thus breaking the chain of infection.

Want to know more about the unsung heroes in logistics? Listen to this podcast from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that outlines how our federal counterparts move critical items quickly to where they’re most needed.
