COVID Update 10.29.2020

King Country is watching the uptick in cases closely and will continue to release information on their website (https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/health/covid-19/data.aspx) 

  • Contact tracing by King County Public Health has increased:  

  • Since the spring, the team has grown to 61 members who investigate over 500 cases each week (roughly 95 percent of all cases in King County).

  • Each week, the team interviews roughly 85% of those positive cases and reaches over 90% of their named contacts.

  • Each month, the team provides hundreds of referrals to testing, grocery delivery, financial assistance, and medical services to cases and contacts.

  • Approximately 80% of those who test positive are staying home before the investigators contact them, which can help limit the spread of COVID-19.

  • RVM has not made any major changes. Our midwifery, family planning, and breastfeeding medicine teams continue to use PPE and follow precautions for in-person clinic and home visits. 

 

We urge our community members to continue to to use masks and social distancing. Let's keep each other safe! And because we all love cool graphics, here's an article that shows how infection can spread:
