The authors would like to thank all staff on the front lines at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and University of Washington who have been working tirelessly to ensure that patient care continues safely during this public health emergency. We would like to thank all of our colleagues at these institutions in Infectious Disease, Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Immunotherapy, Hematologic Malignancies, Solid Tumor disease groups, Pulmonary and Critical Care, Surgical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Transfusion Medicine, Laboratory Medicine, Palliative Care, and Social Work who have been working countless hours developing specialty-specific guidelines regarding COVID-19 on a local and national level. Finally, our commitment to patients would not be possible without the leaders and staff in Infection Prevention, Facilities, Quality Improvement, Information Technology, and many others who continue to contribute enormous efforts in our institution’s response during the COVID-19 pandemic.
