Action needed to stop "fall surge" of COVID-19

Data from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) show that case numbers in western Washington counties are climbing at an alarming rate, near or beyond previous peaks in some areas. As cases in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties continue to trend sharply upward, health officials warn we may now be entering the fall surge.

Now is the time to join your neighbors and commit to key behaviors that keep the virus from spreading, like:

  • Wearing a mask, even with people you see regularly, in your smallest social circles and anytime you are using shared transportation, including while in your own vehicle with other people.
  • Keeping gatherings small and holding them outside whenever possible.
  • Avoiding any social gatherings indoors. If you must participate, wearing a mask and ensuring windows and doors are open to maximize ventilation.
  • Washing or sanitizing hands often and not touching your face.
  • Staying home if you’re sick or if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19.

See the DOH news release for more details.


Stay spooky and stop the spread!
