NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: From the Public Health daily-summary dashboard:
*7,480 people have tested positive, up 40 from yesterday
*522 people have died, up 2 from yesterday
One week ago, those totals were 7,046 and 498.
ONE MORE LOCAL DEATH: The toll in 98126 is now 12.
STATEWIDE NUMBERS: See them here.
WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: See them – nation by nation – here.
FACE-COVERING DIRECTIVE: It officially takes effect tomorrow in King County. This is not a law – but you are “strongly urged” to wear one in public, especially indoors. Here’s the official summary; here’s the full directive. As we reported when it was first announced, a business, for example, CAN require you to wear one.
