COVID-19 Response and Information

COVID-19 Logo

In an effort to further the recommendations of Seattle – King County Public Health and Washington State Department of Health, City of Woodinville City Manager Brandon Buchanan signed a Proclamation of Emergency on March 5, 2020 to reduce red tape, allow flexibility and enhance swiftness in the City's response to COVID-19. The Proclamation was ratified by City Council as Resolution 558 on March 17, 2020.

In conjunction with the Proclaimed Emergency, the City Manager has ordered City Hall and all City park restrooms be closed to the public in an effort to reduce the community spread of COVID-19.  City staff remain operational and available to serve the community. Staff have been directed to work remotely where feasible and to use sick and vacation time to care for family members.

The City encourages the community to seek information from trusted sources such as Seattle – King County Public Health, Washington State Public Health Department, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The March 23, 2020 "Stay Home, Stay Healthy" Order issued by Governor Jay Inslee mandates all residents stay in their homes unless they need to pursue an essential activity such as buying groceries, going to the doctor, or performing essential job functions. The order also bans social, religious, and recreational gatherings and requires closures of non-essential businesses. 

In addition to the above required actions, Public Health professionals are recommending individuals take the following precautionary measures:

If sick, stay home and away from high risk individuals.
Wash hands often and for at least 20 seconds.
Use hand sanitizers when washing hands is not possible.
Cough and Sneeze into elbow or tissue.  Throw tissue away after each use.
Exercise social distancing or 6 feet or greater.
Avoid physically meeting with individuals outside your household

The City of Woodinville remains committed to the health and safety of the community and will continue to monitor COVID-19.  As the situation changes, the City will make adjustments to operations to respond in the best manner possible.
