Seattle-Tacoma International Airport COVID-19 Testing Tracker

The Port of Seattle documents when an employee or airport tenant in a public-facing role tests positive for COVID-19. We define a public-facing role as an employee who primarily interacts with members of the public for at least 15 minutes during their shift. We also track when we are made aware of an airline passenger who tests positive for COVID-19.
All employers, including the Port and its tenants, must report COVID-19 positive test results to King County Health officials and investigate for any indication of workplace spread. Areas are always deep cleaned prior to reopening.
