King county COVID-19 testing update: 

First up, a little bit of positive news in King County’s recent COVID-19 trends. While data are still coming in, it’s looking like the overall case counts in King County are in a slightly downward trend. 

Weekly counts for the most recent 7 days were almost 28% lower than the previous 7 days. THAT’S GREAT NEWS! 

But we need to keep this downward trend going and get our case numbers back to our target of less than 25 new per cases per 100,000 residents over the last 14 days. 

That number is currently about 83. To keep moving in the right direction will require continued vigilance and using the tried and proven strategies of:
  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Socially distance at least 6 feet from others and avoid large gatherings – see no more than 5 people from outside of your household per week
  • Wear a mask whenever in public, especially indoors! Remember, #MaskMonday!
  • Anyone that has any COVID-19 symptoms or has been in contact with someone who has the virus should get tested – right away
