  • Do not go to the emergency room. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs.

Public Health urges residents to follow these recommendations:


  • People  at higher risk of severe illness should stay home and away from large groups of people as much as possible, including public places with lots of people and large gatherings where there will be close contact with others. People at higher risk include:
    • People 60 and older
    • People with  underlying health conditions including heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes
    • People who have weakened immune systems
    • People who  are pregnant
  • Workplaces should enact measures that allow people who can work from home to do so. Taking these measures can help reduce the number of workers who come into contact with people with COVID-19 and help minimize absenteeism due to illness.
    • Some people  need to be at work to provide essential services of great benefit to the community. They can also take steps in their workplaces to minimize risk.
  • If you can feasibly avoid bringing  large groups of people together, consider postponing events and gatherings.
  • Public Health is not recommending closing schools at this time unless there has been a confirmed case in the school.
  • All people should not go out when they are sick.
  • Avoid visiting hospitals, long term care facilities, or nursing homes to the extent possible. If you need to  go, limit your time there and keep six feet away from patients.
  • More detail on these measures will be available at www.kingcounty.gov/covid


In addition to the recommendations listed above, 

the   public can help:

  1. Do not go to the  emergency room unless essential. Emergency rooms need to  be able to serve those with the most critical needs. If you have symptoms like cough, fever, or other respiratory problems, contact your regular  doctor first.
  2. Stay home when sick.
  3. Practice excellent personal hygiene habits, including handwashing, coughing into tissue or elbow, avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth.
  4. Stay away from people who are ill, especially if you are 60 and older or have underlying health conditions  such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, or a weakened immune system, or if you are pregnant.
  5. Stay informed. Information is changing frequently. Check and subscribe to Public Health's website (www.kingcounty.gov/COVID) or blog (www.publichealthinsider.com).

Remember to take every day preventive action such as washing hands, and if you are sick stay home. During an outbreak with a new virus 

  there is a lot of uncertainty. Our guidance and advice is subject to change   as we learn more. We will continue to keep you updated.
