Do you need help training staff on how to clean and sanitize your business? Do you and your neighbors want to learn what steps you can take to reduce COVID-19 risks in your neighborhood?

King County’s COVID-19 Speaker's Bureau provides free presentations with the latest information, resources, and guidance on COVID-19 to communities in King County. We strive to provide culturally relevant presentations and answer questions for communities, businesses, and organizations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our goal is to ensure that all communities in King County have the knowledge we need to stay safe and healthy during this time.

Presentation topics

We can work with you to provide your organization with a presentation about COVID-19 and any topics relevant to your community. We can provide presentations for any type of organization. In the past we have worked with community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, businesses (large and small), and local and state government to provide webinars on various topics related to COVID-19 including:

  • Latest COVID-19 information and guidance
  • COVID-19 vaccine information, access, and hesitancy
  • Safely re-open your business
  • Isolation and quarantine
  • Information and resources for immigrant and refugee communities
  • Clean and sanitize your business, nonprofit, or place of worship
  • Safely serve and distribute food
  • Talk about COVID-19 with students, children, and youth people
  • And many more

If your topic isn't listed above, do not hesitate to ask. We are also able to provide presentations in various languages including Arabic, English, Spanish, and more. We can provide fully accessible webinars, including live captioning, ASL interpreters, materials available in advance, and translation of materials into Braille.

If you do not have an online platform to use for your webinar, we can provide one for you. Currently the County is using Zoom for most of its webinars given Zoom's greater accessibility. We will be able to create a Zoom link for your webinar and provide technical support. This service is only reserved for organizations that do not have access to an online platform, so please let us know if you need this service.

There have been so many COVID-19 myths and misinformation circulating that can harm our communities. The Speaker’s Bureau actively shares the right information with our community members so that they have the knowledge and tools to stay safe"

It's wonderful to be able to connect with people and discuss the facts about this virus and how to stay safe in our day-to-day lives. I see and hear people calm down when they learn the facts and that this virus truly is preventable."

Spanish webinar series

Every Tuesday at 5:00pm. Please email Project Coordinator Megan Holmes at megan.holmes@kingcounty.gov for more information

The purpose of the call is to facilitate a conversation between community members and Public Health — Seattle & King County. This is an opportunity for Public Health to hear from trusted community advocates and to provide resources about COVID-19 prevention as well as tools on how to deal with the stay-at-home order. The calls are coordinated by native Spanish speakers who are familiar with the culture and are established community members as well as public servants.

During these challenging and uncertain times, it is imperative to establish connections with all communities, but especially communities who historically the system has failed to serve.

Right now, immigrant communities are facing so many additional uncertainties, so it is our duty to eliminate language barriers and provide crucial information in culturally relevant and accessible ways.

In the long run, this investment can save lives and will result in a thriving and healthier community."

Penny Lara and Giselle Zapata-Garcia, Co-Leads of the Latinx Community Response Team.
