Spokane County COVID-19 Data
Each day, information evolves about Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19). At the City, we want our citizens and visitors to know that we are working to reduce the spread of this disease in our community, continue to provide critical City services, and address impacts of closures of schools, business and events. For the most recent and local data on cases and outcomes, visit .

What are Your Funding Priorities?
City of Spokane is seeking citizen feedback in an online survey about how it should allocate CARES Act Funding. The City received $6.6 million and some may be used for operational expenses already incurred. The City is seeking additional federal funding from other sources, and if successful, it will impact the community allocation.

The two-minute survey is made up of nine questions asking respondents to rank established areas of need for housing assistance, childcare, COVID-19 response programs, homelessness, and other costs associated with the response that won’t be covered by other relief sources. Survey ends Sunday, July 26!

Governor Takes Steps to Address Spread
As cases of COVID-19 continue to increase across the state, Governor Jay Inslee and Secretary of Health John Wiesman announced a new limit on social gatherings and a ban on live entertainment across the state made effective July 20.
Burn Restrictions in Effect
Each summer around this time, we as a community take steps to reduce our risk of wildfire. The Fire Marshal implemented our burn restriction which helps protect our air quality and reduce risk of fires during the dry, warm summer months. During the burn restriction it is still okay to use manufactured portable devices (like barbeques, fireplaces, chimneas and patio warmers) as long as screens or spark arresters are in place. Back yard fire pits and campfires need to wait until our fire risk reduces.
