Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Although the legislative session has ended, one of the top priorities for many lawmakers continues to be adequately responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19). In fact, the final bill to pass before we adjourned the 2020 session provides $200 million to combat the spread of the virus. I was glad to support this critical funding.

Like many of you, I am concerned for the welfare of the people of our state and nation. In order to help keep you informed on this emerging situation, I've put together helpful information and links to resources. As always, if you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office. I'm glad to help.  

Best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19


  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

If someone believes they are showing symptoms:

  • The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) advises that if someone has symptoms, they should call their doctor—not go to the hospital. The doctor will make an assessment about next steps. If it requires a COVID-19 test, the doctor will then contact public health officials and they will arrange a test. 
  • The Washington State Department of Health has established a call center to address questions from the public. If you have questions about what is happening in Washington, how the virus is spread, and what to do if you have symptoms, you can call 1-800-525-0127 and press #.
