Stop the Spread.


Yakima Together

Our Yakima community faces COVID‑19, or the novel coronavirus, together. Act now to protect your family and help our community re-open safely. This site offers guidance on how you can help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and be a part of moving our community forward.

Quick Facts

The Yakima Health District says the best approach is to act as though you have the virus.

  1. Stay home, or limit how often you go out, to prevent spreading the virus to others.
  2. In public, wear a mask to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
  3. While around those that are not a part of your household, maintain a distance of 6 feet from others.
  4. Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds, cover your cough, and sanitize surfaces.

Mask Up to Open Up

Yakima can only move through its re-opening phases if the county shows a significant drop in the coronavirus infection rate. To do this, we must work together and wear masks. Wearing a mask will reduce the spread of the virus.

COVID-19 spreads through droplets in the air from coughing or sneezing, and you can spread the virus even without experiencing symptoms.

Wearing a mask:

  • Minimizes the spread of your sneeze or cough
  • Releases fewer germs into the air
  • Protects more people from your germs

Let’s all take part in keeping our community safe and re-opening Yakima.
