On March 28, the King County Public Health Officer issued a new quarantine directive and isolation order.

Quarantine Directive: People with symptoms, with a test result pending, are directed to “remain in quarantine while waiting for the test results.”

Isolation Order: People who have tested positive are to “remain in isolation until no longer infectious.”

King County is working on setting up quarantine and isolation facilities for people who are unable to quarantine at home due to more vulnerable family members or other situations. The following locations have been or are being set up:

  • Issaquah isolation and quarantine hotel now open
  • Kent isolation and quarantine hotel now open
  • Eastgate isolation and quarantine center will open April 10
  • Seattle has one isolation and quarantine center open with another opening soon

If you need to utilize an isolation or quarantine facility due to a positive test result, contact the King County COVID-19 call center between 8:00 AM–7:00 PM PST at 206-477-3977 for more information and to register.

Let’s continue working together as a community to keep everyone healthy!
