To slow the spread of COVID-19, King County is acting swiftly to respond to the outbreak in unprecedented time of emergency.

One of the key Public Health interventions we are deploying is the siting of Isolation/Quarantine, Assessment and Recovery, and Shelter De-Intensification facilities across the County. These facilities slow the spread of COVID-19 and minimize the strain on our local healthcare facilities to ensure the safety of the public at large.

Today, two Isolation/Quarantine centers are currently open for guests.

Isolation and Quarantine

Isolation is used for people who are currently ill and able to spread the disease and who need to stay away from others in order to avoid infecting them.

Quarantine is for people who are not currently showing symptoms but are at increased risk for having been exposed to an infectious disease.

Isolation and Quarantine I/Q Facilities

Isolation and Quarantine facilities provide supervised care to symptomatic or COVID-positive adults who cannot safely quarantine or recover in their own home, or do not have a home.

People who stay at an I/Q may be unable to isolate from high-risk individuals in their home or they may be experiencing homelessness. These spaces help support hospital capacity by providing a place of care for people who need assistance, while leaving hospital beds available for the most acutely ill.
