Kittitas County, WA -
Gov. Jay Inslee released statement last night as follows:“Given the explosion of COVID-19 in our state and globally, I will sign a statewide emergency proclamation tomorrow to temporarily shut down restaurants, bars and entertainment and recreational facilities. “Restaurants will be allowed to provide take-out and delivery services but no in-person dining will be permitted. “The ban will not apply to grocery stores and pharmacies. Other retail outlets will have reduced occupancy.“Additionally, all gatherings with over 50 participants are prohibited and all gatherings under 50 participants are prohibited unless previously announced criteria for public health and social distancing are met. “These are very difficult decisions, but hours count here and very strong measures are necessary to slow the spread of the disease. I know there will be significant economic impacts to all our communities and we are looking at steps to help address those challenges."
Due to the nature and definition of the business of the Kittitas Valley Event Center, the facilities and offices will be closed to the public until the temporary closure is officially ended. Correspondence on event cancellations have been sent to all current event holders and facility users. Staff of the Kittitas Valley Event Center will only be accessible through telecommunications. Therefore, all inquires and questions can be emailed to EventCenter@co.kittitas.wa.us or called in at (509)962-7639, Monday through Friday, 8AM-12PM and 1PM to 5PM.
