FEMA awards Washington State $275 million for vaccine distribution

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has obligated an initial $275 million to Washington’s Department of Health (DOH) in support of vaccine distribution sites throughout the state. This Public Assistance grant will support Washington with emergency protective measures to store, handle, transport, distribute, and administer the COVID-19 vaccine. 

For the COVID-19 response, FEMA has streamlined the Public Assistance Grant Program application and reimbursement process to get funds to applicants faster. Expedited reimbursements help local, state, and tribal officials address immediate threats to life, public health, and safety. See the FEMA news release for more details.

Isolation and quarantine are key strategies to reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you test positive for COVID-19, have symptoms, or are identified as a close contact of someone who has COVID-19, public health will ask you to isolate or quarantine as appropriate. 

This page from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) outlines the difference between isolation and quarantine and explains why both are important.

DOH also launched an online COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine Calculator to help you figure out how long you should isolate/quarantine if you have tested positive or been exposed to someone who has.
