As the Washington State COVID-19 State of Emergency comes to an end, October 31 will be our final Daily Case Count report.


 The Department of Community Health is excited to roll out a new website dedicated to information and resources to help individuals, families, and communities within our county navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

The website provides information about COVID-19 symptoms, local testing, and caring for individuals who contract the virus as well as resources targeted for specific groups including businesses and workers, schools and child care, and families. The site also features sections on local and state data, mental health and coping, FAQs, and links to multi-language resources.  

Our team is particularly pleased that the website offers dual-language accessibility with pages dedicated to Spanish language content that are rich with videos, infographics, FAQs, and links to important resources.
