COVID-19 Resources

This page is dedicated to information about the state’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. It includes resources and updates about Washington’s response to this emergency. You can also find resources on Washington’s dedicated COVID-19 website and the HDC page dedicated to COVID-19.

Before the 2020 legislative session ended, the legislature allocated $225 million for COVID-19 response including:

  • $175 million for direct response to the health crisis.
  • $25 million for worker and business protections.
  • $25 million in federal funds to help state agencies, local governments, and tribes respond to the COVID-19 crisis.

These are trying times, and there is clearly much more work to be done on the state and federal level. Though we’re apart for a while, we will get through this together because Washingtonians look out for their neighbors and protect the most vulnerable among us. I am proud of the response of our communities and are proud to represent you in Olympia. I am committed to doing whatever work is necessary to mitigate the damage this crisis has caused, and help our communities, our neighbors, and our economy recover from COVID-19.

Beginning May 11, election year restrictions prohibit me from updating this page. However, I am still here to answer your questions about our COVID-19 response, or any other issues you want to discuss. Please feel free to reach out to me at Debra.Lekanoff@leg.wa.gov.
