King county is beginning to stabilize even as cases are spiking in Yakima County. The governor is urging everyone to get tested if they have any symptoms.

Locally, ICHS has ongoing testing. Call 206-533-2600 and see our previous article.

Numbers are up in the isolation centers because they have taken in the crew of the factory fishing ship that came back to port with half of its crew infected.

The Shoreline isolation center is shuttered.

With the updated numbers here, Shoreline seems to have gone from 378 cases/54 deaths in the last post to 327/43. What accounts for the change in statistics? Did the county/state mis-apply some of the cases to Shoreline and later correct them?
Also, thank you for these posts -- I really appreciate them!

I don't have a clue. Today's numbers are back to the previous ones. I don't think it was me but since the numbers change every day, there's no way to know. Thanks for calling it to my attention. -Diane
