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).

New podcast looks at how stress impacts our brains

Coping with the stress of this pandemic is challenging and exhausting. To help you navigate this unprecedented time, the Washington State Department of Health offers a podcast series of conversations. The first episode looks at how disasters like a pandemic affect our brains, what we can do about it, and how to be resilient.

Pandemics are natural disasters, so we know a lot about how they impact our wellbeing. Our brains are good at responding to stress in short bursts, using “fight or flight” mode. But we’re not used to being in this state for a long time, and the brain gets tired from responding to long periods of stress. As a result, we become more emotional and can’t think as logically.

Where to get help if you're feeling overwhelmed

While it’s normal to feel anxious, sad, or overwhelmed during a pandemic, it’s also important to watch for signs that you or your kids need more support. Unusual mood swings, not having interest in things you love, withdrawing from normal activities, and declining schoolwork are all signs that something might be wrong. If you need help, reach out to your family doctor, visit the Washington State wellbeing webpage, or call the WA Listens support line to talk to someone about COVID-19 stress.
