Volunteers needed to clean up state park coastal beaches.

OLYMPIA, Wash. - The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and its partners invite the public to participate in Operation Shore Patrol and the International Coastal Cleanup on Sept. 21.

Washington State Parks and the Pacific Northwest 4-Wheel Drive Association have been organizing beach cleanups on the third weekend of September since 1971. This is the first time CoastSavers is joining the efforts to expand the participation for this event. Volunteers cleaning the beach on Sept. 21 will be joined by thousands of others around the world, all sharing the common goal of protecting the marine environment. 

“Marine debris is a serious threat to our ecosystems and our enjoyment of the coast,” said Don Hoch, director of the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. “Garbage and debris harm coastal vegetation, wildlife, and marine organisms and mar the beauty of the coastline.”

Volunteers of all abilities are needed. If you can hold a bag, you can help. While some people carry garbage bags to roadside dumpsters, others simply fill bags and leave them on the beach to be collected by volunteers driving four-wheel drive vehicles. 

State and local health officials are investigating a possible intestinal illness outbreak among attendees of a cheerleading competition in Everett last weekend.

Thousands of people attended the event at Everett’s Comcast Arena on February 4; onset of symptoms reportedly began on February 5 and 6. Symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea.

The Washington State Department of Health is working closely with the Snohomish Health District on the investigation. The cause and source of the illnesses, as well as the total number of people sickened, are unknown. Teams and supporters from around the state participated.

The investigation is in the early stages and includes sending a questionnaire to participants as well as collecting samples for testing at the state Public Health Laboratories. People who attended the event and have severe symptoms are advised to contact a health care provider.

According the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA), which hosted the event, more than 3,000 people attended, and more than 1,000 competed in the State Cheerleading and Salute to Spirit in cheer and dance/drill.

Our immediate concerns are for those who have been affected by this illness and our thoughts are with them. The WIAA appreciates the cooperation of Comcast Arena and of state and local health partners for addressing the entire scope of this situation. - WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese

Intestinal illnesses can be caused by several viruses and bacteria that may come from a wide variety of sources. Symptoms typically include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and may include headaches, stomach cramps, and fever. As with many illnesses, good personal hygiene such as frequent hand washing is an important tool to prevent the spread of disease.
