COVID-19 daily cases


Marking one year of COVID-19 response in the US 

One year ago, today, a man in Washington state was diagnosed with the first case of COVID-19 in the United States. Since then, more than 24 million Americans have contracted the virus and over 400,000 have lost their lives. Since that day, every single person in this nation has experienced the aftershock of this first case.

The past year has been challenging for everyone. From fundraisers and volunteering, teachers going the extra mile to students trying their best, businesses adapting and officials advocating, we as a community have weathered the year with generosity and compassion. All it takes is enough of us coming together to help all of us.

2021 will be another year of firsts—our first community-based vaccination clinics, our first restorations of in-person learning, our first return to offices and new jobs, and a new awareness of how fragile the circumstances are for some in our community. Some of us have experienced profound sadness and loss, but many have taken opportunity to learn and grow stronger after being disrupted by circumstances beyond our control.

We are honored to learn, grow, and work with you to increase our resilience as a community. Thank you Kitsap County for all that you have done, and all that you will do to help us get through this together!

New vaccine dashboard offers new window into progress

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH), in partnership with Microsoft AI for Health, announced vaccine data is now available on the COVID-19 Data Dashboard.

The dashboard includes a high-level vaccination snapshot under the Current Status tab as well as a new Vaccinations tab with statewide and county-level data on where, when and how many people are getting vaccinated. See the full news release for details.

Additional metrics will be added to the dashboard in the future. For now, DOH will continue to provide some additional data, like the number of doses allocated to the state, in weekly media briefings and news releases. Sign up to receive news releases at the DOH Newsroom.


Inslee extends 26 proclamations relating to COVID-19

Gov. Jay Inslee Tuesday issued extensions of 26 emergency proclamations, which were extended by the Legislature on Jan. 15 with the passage of Senate Concurrent Resolution 8402.

The proclamations cover a broad range of statutory waivers that support state and local services during the COVID pandemic, including those necessary to support long-term care and behavioral health facilities, provide access to government and relief from tax penalties and fees, and to protect federal stimulus payments from collection for consumer debt. See the complete list in the governor's news release.

Job search requirements continue to be suspended during pandemic. The Washington State House of Representatives and Senate voted to continue the suspension of job search requirements until the Pandemic State of Emergency is withdrawn by the governor or legislative action, whichever is first. This means you can continue to answer “no” to the job search question on your weekly claim until the suspension is lifted. Read more details from the Employment Security Department.
