11 cases of rare COVID-19 related condition in children in Washington state

Today the Department of Health announced there are now 11 cases of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) associated with COVID-19 in Washington state. MIS-C is a rare but serious condition first identified by health care providers in the United Kingdom in late April.

In Washington, six MIS-C cases are nine years old or younger, and five are 10 or older. The counties reporting MIS-C cases are: Franklin (2), King (3), Skagit (1), Snohomish (2), and Yakima (3). No cases have been reported in Kitsap County.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently published an analysis of MIS-C in the United States, where 40 states have reported a total of 570 cases.


Sometimes convincing your loved ones to stay home can be a challenge. Here are some tips on having a conversation about staying home and staying healthy.

In Washington and around the world, we are all in this together. Social distancing does not have to mean social isolation. Encourage loved ones to go outside – as long as they stay six feet away from others. Help them write letters, email friends and family, and try video chatting. Reassure them that you are there for them.
