New: UW Medicine’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will move to a monitoring level of activation beginning July 1, 2022. While COVID-19 transmission rates remain high locally and continue to have an impact on our hospital census and staffing, EOC activities are stable and can be transitioned to normal operations. The EOC has also prepared plans for a full reactivation, if needed.

After 853 days of managing our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the EOC thanks our faculty, staff, trainees and students for your dedicated and inspiring work to serve our patients and community during this unprecedented time in healthcare.

The EOC will no longer publish this weekly update. Please see below for other ways to stay informed.
