Help needed to support COVID-19 efforts

As a King County employee, you can directly help our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak by volunteering to step into a temporary assignment through the Emergency Deployment Program (EDP).

The EDP has been created to urgently fill emergency-related roles within the county, and we have roles that need to be filled this week, including Emergency Site Worker II and Emergency Site Worker IV. If you have capacity, please consider stepping up for one of these temporary work redeployments to assist in our COVID-19 response.

Employee safety and well-being is a priority, and employees will be provided training and support to help them succeed in these temporary redeployments.

These positions may not be suited for employees in the following high-risk categories:

  • Employees 60 years and older
  • Employees with underlying health conditions including heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes
  • Employees with weakened immune systems
  • Employees who are currently pregnant.

Employees will need supervisor approval to participate. Find out how you can help make a difference for our community during this public health emergency on this webpage.
