WHY 98116’S DEATH TOLL DOUBLED: Earlier this month, we noted the death toll in 98116 going from 3 to 6 in the span of one week. Those 4th, 5th, and 6th deaths were all residents at Aegis Living of West Seattle in west Admiral, the company confirms. Aegis says it does not currently have any cases among the residents or staff there. (Thanks to Jennie for the tip.)

NEED FOOD? One place to get some free – Food Lifeline will distribute emergency boxes to anyone who shows up, 2-5 pm Friday (October 2nd) at its South Park HQ, 815 S. 96th.

MEALS FOR STUDENTS & FAMILIES: All students/parents/guardians – regardless of family income – are welcome to pick up meals at 7 Seattle Public Schools sites in West Seattle/South Park, 11:15 am-1:15 pm weekdays. (Also at that link: Info on the one bus route by which meals are delivered in north WS.)

    Is that 4th bullet in KC Numbers for people testing positive or total people tested, regardless of pos/neg outcome?

    One other death in 98116 was in an assisted living facility. That makes 4 of the six deaths. WSB do you know if the other 2 were in a facility??

    My heart goes out to the people living in these facilities. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
