*776 people have died, unchanged since Friday

*2,434 people have been hospitalized, up 1 from yesterday’s total

WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 37.4 million cases and 1,075,000+ deaths – see the nation-by-nation breakdown here.

NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH WEEK: Starts tomorrow – and what better time to remember that all students can get food at Seattle Public Schools‘ distribution sites every weekday right now, free, regardless of family income levels. The sites, times, and menus are all listed here.

ART DURING A PANDEMIC: Local artists have been offering free downloadable coloring pages – and now they’re publishing a book. with proceeds to support arts education – and more.

    Hello all! Does anyone happen to know if the state or King County publishes Covid numbers by zip code? Thanks!

      Yes; we update local death tolls based on that information, for example. You can access it through the same “daily summary” link we publish each night – follow the GEOGRAPHY tab.
