This afternoon Governor Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency in response to a measles outbreak in our state.
Currently, 31 cases of measles have been confirmed in Washington state (30 in Clark County and 1 in King County). No measles cases have been reported in Grays Harbor County.
Our staff will continue to monitor the outbreak closely.
