Answering employee questions about COVID-19 response

Dear King County employee,

As we continue our efforts to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in King County, we have put together a list of answers to common questions for King County employees about our operations during this outbreak.

This is a rapidly evolving event and we will update these Q&As as needed with the most current information. If you have any additional questions, please talk to your supervisor, division director, or Human Resources Manager (SharePoint link). Please also refer to the Public Health – Seattle & King County website at and the Public Health Insider blog for the latest information.

This guidance applies to Executive Branch employees. Employees in separately elected agencies will continue to receive guidance from their leaders: Department of Assessments, Department of Judicial Administration, District Court, King County Council, King County Elections, King County Sheriff’s Office, Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Superior Court.

Supervisors: please print and post for employees who do not have access to email.
