What's New with Face Coverings
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings, when physical distancing is difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). Researchers are learning more about COVID-19 every day, including that some people can unknowingly spread the virus to others before they have symptoms or spread the virus to others without ever having symptoms. This is why maintaining physical distancing from others is effective in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Now that businesses are slowly starting to open as part of the Safe Start Washington recovery plan, it will be increasingly difficult to maintain 6-feet of distance from others, especially in indoor public places. Wearing a cloth face covering can help slow the spread of COVID-19 in these instances. Learn more about how cloth face coverings support health and business recovery. 
Your City at Work
The Historic Rose Apartments were on the move in East Central Spokane. Watch the monstrous feat of moving a 400,000 pound two-story brick building built in 1910 to its new home. This was great teamwork between East Central Community Organization, the City of Spokane's Community, Housing, and Human Services Department and Historic Preservation to make room for the North Spokane Corridor project.
Post Street Bridge Closes Wednesday
A project to replace the Post Street Bridge downtown will begin on Wednesday, June 17. The bridge, which currently only carries pedestrian and bicycle traffic, will be closed for the next two years. See the detour routes for pedestrians and bicyclists.
