Messaging

Essential public health messages can easily get lost in translation, inappropriate language use, or by way of the wrong communication method. Public Health – Seattle & King County has focused on developing the appropriate tools and messages that will reach residents understand what they can do to help decrease the spread of disease – particularly during an emergency.

The “Stop Germs, Stay Healthy!” public education campaign was developed to simply demonstrate how to stop the spread of disease. Messaging and illustrations were pre-tested with a variety of audiences, translated and are available for broad distribution.
