Seattle-King County Public Health Officer update on COVID-19 outbreak 

In spite of Washington State’s ongoing efforts to contain it, COVID-19 is spreading more rapidly by the day, especially among people aged 20-40. And while they are less likely to become seriously ill from the virus, they can still spread it to friends, family and neighbors – without even knowing they have it. 

The CDC has updated its list of people who are at increased risk of severe illness and those who should take extra precautions to avoid getting the virus, regardless of age. Among them are some members of racial and ethnic groups that have experienced longstanding health and social inequities, including Black people, Native Americans and Latinos.

Additionally, people of all ages with certain conditions may be at increased risk, including hypertension, pregnancy, smoking, diabetes, or obesity (defined as having a BMI above 30). You can learn more about who is at increased risk for serious illness from COVID-19, and what you can do to help protect them, at this Public Health Insider blog post.
