Being a Good Neighbor During an Uncertain Time
In this time of uncertainty, it is important that we remember our community’s values of being safe, inclusive, and welcoming. We are all in this together, and we all have a role to play. It is critical to remember that misinformation about COVID-19 can create fear and hostility that hurts people and makes it harder to keep everyone healthy. No race, nationality, or ethnicity is more likely to have COVID-19. Speak up if you hear, see, or read harassment, and avoid spreading misinformation.
Public Health - Seattle & King County has developed various resources for responding to stigma.
