Snoqualmie Emergency Management Dept. is Monitoring COVID-19 Developments

The King County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) has been activated following the emergence in King County of the novel coronavirus, named COVID-19. The King County EOC will provide regional coordination in support of county and local operations for King County residents.

The City of Snoqualmie Department of Emergency Management is closely monitoring the situation. It is working with the King County Department of Emergency Management and Public Health to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of Snoqualmie residents, employees at local businesses, and visitors to our community. If an outbreak were to occur in the Snoqualmie community, the City of Snoqualmie would activate its emergency management plan and coordinate local response with the county and state.

Most coronavirus illnesses are mild with fever and cough. The majority do not require hospital care. A much smaller percentage of cases are severe and may include pneumonia, particularly in elderly people and people with underlying medical conditions.

The most important measures you can take are washing your hands frequently and staying home if you are sick.
