This dashboard shows the current COVID-19 community level for King County. The three metrics which determine the level (low, medium, or high) are: total new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 in the past seven days, new COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 population in the past seven days, and the percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients. This COVID-19 community level dashboard reflects the CDC's recommended categories (as of February 25, 2022) for COVID-19 prevalence. This page replaces the 'Key Indicators' data dashboard. For more information, please consult the CDC website on COVID-19 Community Levels.

4/12/2022: Data reported on this dashboard may differ from the COVID-19 Community Level reported through the national data tracker from CDC.
For new cases per 100,000 in the past 7 days, this dashboard uses specimen collection date, while the CDC’s tracker is based on report date. A large number of reports on any specific date from states to the CDC (due to delayed reporting) can lead to a temporary large increase in cases reported on the CDC tracker that reflects past, not current COVID-19 activity.
