COVID-19 Response

The Snohomish County Emergency Coordination Center (ECC) has been activated to focus the community’s resources on combatting the spread of the novel coronavirus/COVID-19. The ECC is working on a number of priorities. These include:

  • Supporting Snohomish Health District as it leads the public health response.
  • Minimizing the impact of long-term school closures.
  • Lessening risk that COVID-19 poses for the most vulnerable populations.
  • Preparing for a surge in demand for medical services across the healthcare spectrum as the virus spreads.
  • Supporting county departments in planning for continuing operations.
  • Providing the community with credible information about COVID-19.
