Governor Jay Inslee announced yesterday that King County will remain in Phase 3 of Washington state’s Roadmap to Recovery for the next two weeks. In Phase 3, indoor spaces such as restaurants, gyms and museums will be able to continue to operate with up to 50% of capacity. In King County, cases remain high, and cases and hospitalizations have been on the increase since mid-March. But after several weeks of cases rising, in the past week cases have remained stable, showing signs that the recent increase may be starting to level off. Overall, rates of COVID-19 remain highest in south and southeast King County. These areas continue to experience higher rates of hospitalizations, a continued concerning trend. Notably, over the past two weeks, the arrival of plenty of vaccine into King County has been a game-changer. For the first time in over a year, as a community, we have the very real opportunity to get the pandemic under control. For quotes, and information on how to access vaccine, click here.
