"Outside today and tomorrow. Here's a look at what we got going into the second half of your weekend. Once again, we're going to be talking about a few pockets of fog. I think that's most likely the case in the North sound through the strait. Function clear pretty rapidly for your Sunday high temperatures ranging in the low to upper seventies all around Puget Sound Absolutely beautiful were cooling down These temperatures Monday and Tuesday, down to the mid sixties I'm meteorologist debut, Coney Become a Weather Center. Not more of your top stories from the co Mo newsroom. I'm Ryan Harris. State Health says There were 31 new covid hospitalization since the last report, about a third of ICU beds in the state are currently occupied by Covid patients. That's up another half percentage point. And right now there are about 130. Total adult ICU beds available across the entire state state also reports 36 more deaths from Covid and added nearly 4300 new cases. Covid cases continue to surge in King County. Over the last seven days, We've seen an average of almost 600 cases per day, which is a 72% increase in cases. Since I last spoke to you three weeks ago. Health officer, Dr Jeff Duchin says these cases are largely among the unvaccinated, he says the best defense remains wearing a mask and getting the shot. A new group of public employees is joining the growing list of workers mandated to get the Covid vaccine. Thurston County now requiring all of its employees to be fully vaccinated Co. Most Keith Eldridge has more. The mandate here follows on Governor Inslee's mandates that all state workers and school employees be fully vaccinated by October. 18th. But unlike the governor's mandates, workers in Thurston County have until October 31st to be fully vaccinated. And another key difference is Thurston County Workers have the option of getting tested every week rather than the vaccine. I'm a big fan. I'm glad they They did it. I'm a little curious how the How it will go in terms of how many folks choose to do the weekly testing or not. But I think it's a good step in the right direction, and I supported it. But not everyone is in favour. As we heard in public testimony just before the commissioners voted, you should not be imposing. Your choices for other people's medical choices. But the Health Department director says here's the reason for the urgency. Covid cases have never been this high since the start of the pandemic. Director believes the new county mandate coupled with the fact there are so many state workers in Thurston County will really help in vaccination numbers going up That's co most Keith Eldridge. All public schools in our state have to adhere to the new covid safety protocols or give up some state funding. Superintendent Chris Ragdoll says. If districts willfully failed to comply, they will be put on notice. They have 15 days then to correct the issue, if not, their funding, will be paused. Any funding the districts don't receive will be pro rated once they then comply with Covid safety measures. Congresswoman Kim Schreier is suggesting public schools periodically test students and staff for covid in the wake to handle transmissible disease like this to just kind of routinely test. When you find cases you you know, you pull people out of circulation, saying a federal mandate likely wouldn't hold up. The Washington Democrat proposes federal funding for districts that want to do it themselves. State workers, teachers and public school employees still have time but they have to be fully vaccinated by October 18th or face losing their jobs they can apply for religious or medical exemption. The Snohomish Health District is putting out the warning that anyone who was in a recent three on three basketball tournament and the Arlington airport should get tested. They have identified at least one confirmed case from the event on August 14th and 15th. T Mobile says it's notified nearly all of the millions of customers whose personal data was stolen and that it was truly sorry for the breach. CEO Mike Siebert says in a written statement. The company spends a lot of effort to try to stay ahead of criminal hackers, but didn't live up to expectations. Siebert's statement follows a report in The Wall Street Journal in which a 21 year old American hacker living in Turkey told the newspaper he was responsible for the hack, and he blamed the T Mobile's lax security for making it possible. Siebert made no direct reference to the hacker but said in short, this individual's intent was to break in and steal data, and they succeeded. Let's get an update from the Beacon Plumbing sports desk. Mariners can't get by the Royals 42 to the final A T Mobile park. That's the EMS third straight loss and will look to avoid the sweep on Sunday. There was no help to be found in the wild card race either is beat the Yankees 322 while the Red Sox stop the Indians and extras 5 to 3.

A Super Bowl during the covert 19 era is gonna look different. We want to see as many fans in the stands, but doctors say the attendance at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa is not what's worrying them. We don't want to move backward, but that will happen if we're not careful, it's Dr Chris Peters with Snohomish Health District. Is concerned about potential indoor gatherings that will most likely happen this Sunday to watch the game. The role is to limit the number of places where people a lot of people get together and are touching the same surface and breathing the same air because now we're in Phase two in the Puget Sound region. That's a likely possibility why this worries health experts can be seen through the Department of Health's data. Every time we've had a winter holiday, whether it be Thanksgiving Christmas or New Year's Eve, which are generally spent indoors cases have gone up shortly after, and right now we're seeing the number of new cases drop. And here's what's coming up on the comb. Oh, morning news, warning for those tempted to boast on Brian Calvert and showing that vaccination card on social Media is a really bad idea.

Vaccination sites had to close their doors for a couple days because they simply don't have enough supply. To meet the demand. This'll has been a continual frustrated in for officials in Snohomish County. The bottleneck really still is supply after successfully opening several mass vaccination sites, the sights and Everett Edmonds and Monroe will be closed tomorrow and Tuesday, their reasoning a lack of the modern a vaccine.

The UFCW, which represents 48,000, people statewide, willing to fight any pushback from chains. Had threatened to cut hours or jobs. I think the community will stand with grocery store workers who have been taking care of us since the beginning of this pandemic and make sure that the companies don't take it out on the workers who have made the profits for these companies and as the state and Seattle itself works to boost its vaccine supply, the mayor says she has spoken with the Biden administration to get more doses two cities.

There was a man in his thirties from Snohomish County, Washington, who walked off a plane after a flight back to the U. S from Wuhan, China. It was January 15th. He took a bus from the airport to his home north of Seattle. The next day, he fell ill and soon Washington governor Jay Inslee notified the entire country of the cause. On January 20th. Samples were confirmed by the CDC in Atlanta that in fact, he carried the novel Corner virus Standing next to Endsley at the very first press conference, Washington Secretary of Health John Wissman Thank you, Governor Inslee.

We had many more unknowns than we had knowns who was actually at risk of having caught the virus was the patient contagious before he had symptoms. You know, we can't wait weeks to figure that out, or we can't wait for months to have more data, so we had to make decisions out of the gate. Another one was about the patient himself, who has never been identified publicly. He wasn't that sick, but we spent had to make the call. Should he be hospitalized? If so, who pays? So I made the decision, you know? Look, we're not gonna let that get in the way. Meanwhile, there was a room full of people at the Snohomish Health District. Furiously working the phones doing contact tracing. Harry Parker led the effort. This one was kind of like doing something really familiar to you, but doing it blindfolded. The patient had gone to a restaurant, a doctor's office soon the circle of possible contacts had expanded to over 60 people. There's extreme panic and fear in the community, and I think that it was even more challenging because people want to know things that you don't know yet. But there was only one case and the county had a full team plus the state and the CDC. All there to help. If you're going to air, you're going to air on the side of caution. Until you know more.

None of his contacts tested positive travelers from abroad were being screened at airports. So, Parker says. It seemed like maybe that was it. That window was Ah Honeymoon period that was well deserved because that case was managed beautifully. That thought crossed Washington Health Secretary John Weisman's mind too. So there is a point in time where I'm like, Oh, my gosh, did we actually managed to escape a larger outbreak? It was a short lived moment of relief. And then of course we learned now. Actually, we didn't escape. There was more out there. More than anybody knew at the time. A few weeks later, a second, then a third coronavirus case were discovered outside Seattle, these with no connection to the first patient or China. Soon something became very clear to Eastman, who's recently left his post as secretary of health. All that work on that very first patient hundreds of hours and dozens of people.
