    • April 26: Video & transcript: COVID media briefing with King County’s Health Officer
    • April 25: What does medium COVID-19 level mean for you? Our latest data and steps to take with cases rising

 

  1. Web updates
    • Recommendations for long-term care facilities page: Updated with current guidance about reporting cases to Public Health, added a link to the latest King County toolkit, removed outdated information.
    • COVID-19 testing locations and guidance page: Auburn testing site hours will change starting Saturday April 30.

 

  1. New testing resource: Low or no-cost COVID-19 tests are available to everyone, including the uninsured, at participating pharmacies through the Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program. Visit their site to find a location near you. You can also find a link to the program on the Testing page under “Additional Testing Options in King County.”

 

  1. In-language resources
    • Blog post (Spanish): ¿Tiene el riesgo de presentar síntomas graves a causa del COVID-19? Es posible que haya un tratamiento  
    • Blog post (Spanish): Que significa para usted el nivel medio de COVID-19? Nuestros datos mas recientes y los pasos a seguir con el aumento de casos
    • Spanish translations are available for two FAQ questions that were recently added to the Support for workers during COVID-19 page under the COVID-19 and Employment section:
  • Can I ask my employer to require that all employees in my workplace wear masks, especially as an accommodation if I have a health condition that puts me at greater risk from COVID?
  • I have long COVID, which makes it difficult for me to do my job the same way as I did before. What are my options?”

 

  1. Social Media:

Even with mandates lifted, #masking continues to be critical, as well as testing and getting #boosters.

While we can’t predict the future course of the #pandemic, including whether or how much cases will continue to rise or when they may fall, we know preventing cases through layered prevention strategies can help individuals stay safe and healthy and decrease the risk for surges.

Most important: Be sure you are up to date on all recommended #COVID19 vaccine doses – get boosters doses when you are eligible for the best protection, especially against severe disease. More considerations and recommendations as we move into spring: bit.ly/3KZR1Kz
