Guidance for child care administrators


What to do when you have a suspected/confirmed case of COVID-19 in your facility

You may find that there are differences in the guidance issued by local, state, and national entities. King County is currently more heavily impacted by COVID-19 than many other regions throughout the state. Public Health—Seattle & King County's guidance reflects our commitment to protecting the health and safety of our residents in light of our unique local circumstances. As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, the number of King County cases continues to increase. If you become aware of a COVID-19 case in a child, staff member, or volunteer at your facility, please notify Public Health:

  • Call the COVID-19 Call Center between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. PST at 206-477-3977. Identify yourself as a child care provider. Interpreters are available.

  • OR complete a COVID-19 Intake Survey external link. Public Health will respond with an email or phone call.

Your partnership and many contributions to the COVID-19 response are enormously valued during this challenging time.
