Snohomish County will recover, and we will be stronger than ever.
“COVID-19 has hit our community hard. In addition to the direct medical effects, it is having a heavy impact on our businesses, their employees, and our entire economy. While we remain focused on keeping our community healthy and safe, we are also working to provide assistance to our business community and their employees. Snohomish County is setting up tools to ensure the voices of our business community are heard regionally and nationally. We want to support our businesses and help them through this crisis, including facilitating access to state and federal emergency programs. Together, we will get through this.”

The State has issued a template to be used by any businesses allowed to re-open under Phase 3 that have not already received industry guidance. The template will walk businesses through best practices for sanitation, social distancing, PPE, scheduling, serving customers, and more, allowing them to meet health and safety requirements by taking an approach that works best for their operations. Templates need to be completed and kept on-site, but do not need to be submitted to the State for review. Importantly, industry-specific guidance remains in effect. You can read more here and access the Phase 3 template here.
