The surge goes on – here are the pandemic toplines:

    If you have been pressured into making in-person Thanksgiving plans, it’s not too late to back out!

      We backed out of our plans last night and my siblings were all relieved and said they had wanted to back out too. Better safe than sorry!

    WSB, might you consider posting daily statewide numbers too?

    Thanks so much for all you do.

    Hm, the Seattle Times listed the King County number at 888. I wonder what their number is based on.

      If you click through, you will clearly see that King County’s daily update is exactly what we have published, and our source every single night for 9 months now. So I have no idea. For posterity’s sake, here’s a screengrab:

Sorry, comment time is over.
