COVID-19 Community Update
March 31, 2020

#Inland Strong
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 .
Non-Compliance Reporting
In an effort to coordinate phone calls, emails, and social media concerns around businesses that
remain open during the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order in Washington, Inland COVID-19 Response Incident Management Team has set up one contact point for the community.

Email or Call for Concerns:
Please provide the business name, address, if available, and your contact information in
the event follow-up is needed.

The coordinated Inland Business Compliance effort will direct your questions to the proper
entity for any needed action.To be clear, this is a reporting avenue only. Callers will not be contacted unless additional followup is needed. The information provided will be evaluated, and the business contacted if they remain open in violation of the Governor’s order.

The outreach resources are not intended to be used to report that neighbors are not
properly social distancing themselves. We are asking the community to self-regulate and use the
email and phone number for more serious situations. Directing concerns to the email and phone
number will take the load off our 911 and Crime Check systems so they can respond to other
critical emergency situations. Please DO NOT call 9-1-1 or Crime Check to report citizens or businesses who you feel are not following the order.
Project Share & U-Help Team Up for Utility Assistance
As the Spokane community works to slow the spread of COVID-19, Project Share and U-Help, two important local programs supported by public donations that provide assistance with utility bills, have teamed up to assist community members facing hardship because of COVID-19. 

The new partnership between Avista and the City is designed to increase direct financial support for those who need it most during the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order that has led to widespread closures of businesses and schools. The programs are working to raise money to help those in need.

Here’s how you can help. Donate in any amount over the next six weeks. For every dollar donated by the community to help people with their utility bills, the City of Spokane and Avista will each match it. That means for every $1 donated, $2 more will go to support their neighbors.

Those who need help can contact SNAP at (509) 456-SNAP to request support. 

More information on support that’s available for our community members and businesses can be found on the City’s web site

On the Bright Side
A great example of #InlandStrong!
Ziebart Auto Detailing does not qualify as an essential business. However, local franchise owner Brian O'Shaughnessy wanted to pay it forward to first responders and has been providing complimentary cleaning and disinfection of their vehicles. Thank you Brian!
