How to gather safely: Everyone has a role in stopping the spread of COVID-19
Public Health partners continue to develop messaging for children, youth, and families to support community safety and wellness during the pandemic. Washington State Department of Health’s (DOH’s) newest blog post outlines the questions and issues to talk through when planning to get together with friends or family. Remember that large gatherings are still not allowed. King County also has a blog post about the rules and FAQs around social gatherings with friends.
Staying safe while enjoying outdoor recreation
With increased outdoor activity during the pandemic, there has been a rise in drownings during the last month in local waters. Tony Gomez, manager for Violence & Injury Prevention for PHSKC, said that “this August is the deadliest in at least the most recent seven years, and we have a ways to go.” Children and youth are particularly susceptible to drowning so help us share these safety tips with students and families who are planning to head out to the water or other outdoor recreation activities:
o Safe Swimming in COVID times
o Ride Away Your Stress, Safely and Affordably!
o Community develops multilingual videos to promote salmon fishing on the Duwamish River
o Seattle-King County Public Health Water Safety Resource page
