This form can be used to report respiratory illness (e.g. COVID-19, Influenza, RSV) to PHSKC. If you are reporting a different notifiable condition or disease, please call our main Public Health Communicable Disease line at 206-296-4774. 

COVID-19 Suspected Outbreak Reporting

  • Report "new or unreported" suspected outbreaks of COVID-19 among employees/residents/students/clients in healthcare facilities, schools/childcares, and congregate settings.
  • If you do not hear from a Public Health Investigator and the number of cases significantly increase and/or cases associated with your facility are hospitalized or die as a result of their Covid-19 infection, please return to this portal to submit additional information about your facility.

Reporting Requirements

  • Healthcare Facilities: submit your initial report if your facility identifies 1 resident and/or employee who test positive for COVID-19. Please report within 24 hours of meeting these criteria.
  • Childcares: submit your initial report when you identify at least 3 cases within a specified core group who test positive for COVID-19 within a 14 day period.
  • Congregate Settings: submit your initial report if your facility identifies 1 resident and/or employee who test positive for COVID-19.
  • K-12 Schools:
    • Public Schools- please use the unique link provided to your school district contact. PHSKC does not follow-up on COVID-19 public school reports to this portal.
    • Private Schools- if your school has already received a unique reporting link, please use that instead of filling out this form! If this is your first ever report to PHSKC, please fill out this initial form and you will be provided a unique link via email for future reporting. 
  • Other Non-healthcare workplace settings: Public Health is currently unable to review reports from non-healthcare and non-congregate workplaces. If you would like a call back for a specific question or support need, please specify that in this form and we will follow up as we are able.
