On January 21, 2020 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Washington State Department of Health announced the first case of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States in Washington State. Washington State declared a state of emergency on February 29, 2020. Since then, WFIA members, state and local agencies, and other businesses demonstrated a rapid response to the growing concerns of COVID-19.
