Mask Up · Wash Up · Stay Safe

The current record setting spike in COVID-19 cases across the state and across Clark County were the cause for the November 15, 2020 announcement by Governor Inslee closing all indoor dining at restaurants, social gatherings of more than 6 people and once again shutting down theaters, bowling alleys and both youth and adult athletic events.This dealt a crushing, if not knock-out blow to many businesses. More details are available from the governor’s office here.

Understanding the challenges this step backwards presents to our businesses, we at the Chamber are committed to do everything we can to minimize the effects on each of you. We’ll start with providing you the most up to date information on guidance by business category we can at the earliest possible opportunity. We will also be advocating on your behalf for additional financial aid from our state and federal governments, then working to get it distributed to our local businesses as quickly as possible.
Working together we all have a role in curtailing the spread of the coronavirus.

The following points are the key methods, proven to be effective in reducing the transmission of the virus:
  • Stay home. It is still the safest.
  • If you go out, stay six feet apart, wear a face covering, and wash your hands.
  • Stay local, voiding travel if at all possible.
  • Have fewer, safer social interactions.

A full guidance page is available here.
