If you thought mask mandates in King County were a thing of the past, think again. King County Public Health Officer Dr. Jeffrey Duchin says the county is seeing more cases per day than at the peak of the delta surge.
He also says over the past week there have been 21 new COVID-19 hospitalizations per day, about one person hospitalized each hour. “We are in active discussions about if and when to consider re-issuing a mask mandate,” Duchin said during a press briefing.
