Third Case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Snohomish County

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – The Snohomish Health District was notified late Sunday afternoon of a new case of COVID-19. The presumptive positive test result came back from the State Public Health Laboratory, bringing the total number of cases in Snohomish County to three. This number is expected to rise as more people are tested and results confirmed.

The new case is a male in his 40s, hospitalized at EvergreenHealth in Kirkland. The man is in critical condition.

The Health District is leading the effort to as quickly as possible identify close contacts of the new confirmed case. At this time, it appears to be another case of community transmission. 

The public can help:

  • Do not go to the emergency room unless essential. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. 
  • If you have symptoms like cough, fever, or other respiratory problems, call your regular doctor first.
  • Stay home when sick.
  • Practice excellent personal hygiene habits, including handwashing, coughing into tissue or elbow, avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Stay informed. Information is changing frequently. Check the Health District’s website (www.snohd.org/ncov2019) or follow on social media. 

The Snohomish Health District works for a safer and healthier community through disease prevention, health promotion, and protection from environmental threats. To read more about the District and for important health information, visit www.snohd.org.
