Case updates November 16, 2020; 500 local nurses urge King county to confront the surge of COVID-19 cases

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

In the midst of an unprecedented surge in COVID-19 cases, more than 500 King County nurses issued an urgent call to renew efforts to turn around this troubling trend. 

“It’s been a tough year, and we’ve all sacrificed so much to stay safe. But now, with cases skyrocketing in King County, it’s more important than ever to stop the spread,” reads the nurses’ message, published Sunday in a special wrap-around section of the Seattle Times.

Getting our outbreak under control can seem daunting. But as King County nurses remind us: “We’ve flattened the curve before, and we can do it again.”
