View the COVID-19 Risk Assessment Dashboard for the latest data.

DATA UPDATE: As of Nov. 18, we changed the way we report data on people currently affected by COVID-19 in our community. We have replaced the “Active Cases” and “Active Contacts” measure in our daily Surveillance Report with new measures for “Cases in Isolation” and “Close Contacts in Quarantine.” Cases in isolation are confirmed or probable COVID-19 cases who are in their recommended isolation period (10 days after first symptoms). Close contacts in quarantine are residents who were determined to be close contacts of confirmed cases and are in their recommended quarantine period (14 days after last contact with case).

Inslee announces additional COVID-19 financial support

Gov. Jay Inslee today announced additional financial support funds for families and businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to $50 million in funds announced on Sunday, the total new economic supports amount to $135 million. Included in that total is:

  • $70 million in business support grants
  • $30 million for the recovery loan program.
  • $20 million for rental assistance
  • $15 million for energy bills for low-income households 

The grants will be allocated first to businesses most impacted by both COVID-19 and the most recent measures taken to address public safety. See the governor's news release for more details.


Inslee caps third-party delivery fees to help restaurants

Gov. Jay Inslee yesterday announced a new cap on fees charged to restaurants by third-party delivery platforms, such as Uber Eats, DoorDash, GrubHub, Postmates and others.

The proclamation caps delivery fees at 15% and total fees at 18% of the purchase price of an order. Third party delivery platforms have seen increased usage as fewer people are dining indoors this year due to health restrictions and concerns over contracting COVID-19. The proclamation is similar to measures taken in several cities around Washington. It takes effect Wednesday, Nov. 25, at 12:01 a.m.


Fall child care COVID-19 grants available

To ensure a stable, functional and flexible child care system that supports providers and families during COVID-19, the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) is providing direct support to licensed child care providers for stabilization, to assist with reopening and staying open, to offset increased costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and to incentivize providers to serve school-age children.

Licensed providers must agree to remain open and serve children through the end of the 2020-2021 school year to qualify. More information about eligibility criteria and prioritization can be found on the DCYF website.
