Dear Friends:

Public Health – Seattle & King County are continuing to work in partnership with state and federal health agencies to respond to COVID-19. Yesterday, our state’s congressional delegation and Governor Inslee hosted a news conference with Vice President Pence as our elected leaders work to address the concerns of our community. A big reason Vice President Pence came to Washington State is the preparation of Patty Hayes and her team at the Seattle – King County Department of Public Health, who are working around the clock to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19 throughout our community.

I have been pleased to host Seattle – King County Director of Public Health Patty Hayes at multiple town hall events in Auburn and Federal Way

Guidance from Public Health remains the same. It was announced today that the University of Washington will be conducting all classes online for the remainder of the month after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. The federal government has passed an $8.3 billion emergency spending bill to combat COVID-19, which will provide important funding and support for state and local health agencies as they continue to provide critical services to the communities affected.

During an outbreak, there is a lot of uncertainty and information is changing frequently. I hope you will take a moment to subscribe to Public Health’s email alerts. You can also frequent their blog at www.publichealthinsider.com. Finally, you can join the effort to protect our community by sharing this information with family and friends on social media. The links below will continue to provide the most current information regarding the virus.

With best wishes,
Pete von Reichbauer
King County Councilmember
