Need help while isolating? Call Care Connect WA

If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 and need food or other assistance while you isolate, please call the state COVID-19 information hotline at 1-800-525-0127, then press #. Language assistance is available.

Care Connect Washington is a program to provide food and other necessities to people who have either tested positive for COVID-19 or been exposed and need support to isolate or quarantine at home. The state Department of Health, working with local health jurisdictions and their partners, is operating Care Connect Washington on a region-by-region basis. Each region works with community-based partners to connect people to services they are eligible for, such as medication delivery, health care, help applying for unemployment, local housing agencies, food banks, childcare providers and more. Help is made based on need.

San Juan County is included in the North Region. North Sound Accountable Community of Health serves as the Care Connect Washington Hub for Island, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, and Whatcom counties.

To make it possible for people in isolation or quarantine to stay home, Care Connect Washington provides such things as personal care kits, nonperishable food kits, and fresh food orders delivered to their homes. If other essential needs are identified, such as financial assistance for paying bills, a local care coordinator helps people apply for local resources or services they may be eligible for, or provides them direct assistance in paying bills such as rent, mortgage, and utilities. When isolation or quarantine ends, the care coordinator can connect people to longer-term local services to support ongoing health and social needs. Care Connect Washington provides the information people need in their preferred language.

If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 and need food or other assistance in order to isolate at home, contact the COVID-19 Information Hotline at 1-800-525-0127, then press #. Language assistance is available.

The hotline hours are:

• 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday

• 6 a.m. to 6 pm., Tuesday through Sunday and observed state holidays
