As of late February 2020, King County Public Health identified cases of novel coronavirus, including several deaths. Since that time, COVID-19 has spread throughout King County, the State of Washington, and the United States. In order 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.
