Washington State: Personal COVID-19 Report from Snohomish County

Greetings Kin,

Sharing the COVID-19 perspective from Snohomish County Washington. There are no tests unless you go to the emergency room. So, we’ve isolated accordingly. There’s never been such little traffic along I-5 in Seattle, if you go far enough to see it.
