Each year, @ShakeOut is an opportunity to practice what you would do during an earthquake. Knowing what to expect can help keep you calm and collected when the real thing happens so you can effectively protect yourself. But what exactly does the real thing feel like?

Each and every person who gets fully vaccinated is helping to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community and protecting those who are still not eligible for vaccination.❤️As public servants, this is how we keep our community and the people we serve safe.
More than 92% of @KingCountyWA employees are vaccinated, and nearly 97% have complied with my Executive Order. As public servants, we have an obligation to do everything we can to protect the health and safety of the people we serve and the people we work alongside.
