The COVID-19 Delta variant is spreading fast. As of October 25 in King County, proof of vaccination will be required for everyone ages 12+ at outdoor events of 500 or more people, indoor recreational events or establishments, restaurants, and bars. As of September 13 in Washington state, masks are required for everyone ages 5+ at outdoor events with 500 or more people, and continue to be required in public indoor spaces. For more information, please see our Current COVID-19 guidance page.

By now, most of us know the symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, and body aches. And we understand the importance of wearing a snug-fitting mask, keeping 6 feet apart, and limiting indoor gatherings.

The resources on this page are here to support you in maintaining habits that will keep all of us safe. Thank you.
