Although it’s been a while since we’ve updated this blog or our website, we wanted to reassure you that the Hub Captains and other volunteers — here in West Seattle and across the City of Seattle — are still very much engaged in helping our community be prepared, resourceful and resilient.
Last evening, over 40 of us met VIRTUALLY with a representative from the Community Mitigation branch of Public Health Seattle & King County/to learn more about how we can help slow or stop the spread of this virus, and safely help those in our community who fall ill.
We also wanted to share a few local and national resources here and encourage all of you to share information with your friends, families, neighbors and others — and do what you can to dispel any misinformation.
