As communities congregate to drop off ballots and make plans for the holidays, officials warn of rising case counts. The goal of preventing further spread of COVID-19 is to protect vulnerable populations, but also to avoid over-burdening hospitals, which could lead to understaffing for all acute care, including heart attacks and car wrecks.

Over the weekend, Snohomish County saw its single highest one-day total of new reported cases – 141. The Health District is receiving reports of between 50 and 100-plus cases each day.

Officials recommend wearing masks with all social or public interactions including grocery store visits, appointments. But also getting together at a friend's house, carpooling, lunch breaks with a coworker, and any other face to face contact.

The recommendation is to avoid letting down one's guard, unless at home with household members.
