On March 23rd, Governor Inslee issued a “Stay at Home” order for the state of Washington for the next two weeks. What does this mean for you?
- You’re still allowed to go outside and take a walk but make sure to practice social distancing- this means staying at least 6 feet away from other people.
- You’re allowed to grocery store, especially during times specified for seniors; there is a great chart on the next page.
- You’re still allowed do other essential business like go to the doctors, check your mail, and other essential things for your health and well being.
- You’re allowed to get a to-go lunch with us at Lake City Senior because it is considered “Essential Business”.
Things that are prohibited would be going to church, weddings, any group meetings at home or in public, leisurely shopping, etc. in person. If it is not essential to your well being please do not engage in it. All in-person group gatherings are banned if it is for a nonessential purpose.
Lake City Seniors shares your concerns about the rapidly evolving and expanding global novel coronavirus (COVID-19). At this time, there are no cases of COVID-19 at Lake City Seniors, nor any staff with symptoms.
Lake City Seniors will continue to be closed except for essential programs listed below through April 13th following the Seattle School Closure notice and recommendations from the King County Department of Public Health.
