Dear community media,
Wishing you a safe holiday, connecting with friends and loved ones over the phone, internet, or thru…mail?
With cases skyrocketing in King County, it's more important than ever to stop the spread:
- Wear a mask around people you don't live with (even close friends and family).
- Stay home as much as possible.
- Follow the Governor's limitations on indoor gatherings.
- Quarantine and get tested at the first sign of illness or if you've been around someone with COVID-19.
- The safest option is to avoid gathering with people you don't live with this holiday season.
