The City Helps Businesses with Phase 2 Compliance

Scheduled site visits offer support and direction, not penalties

(Edmonds, WA) -   COVID-19 restrictions have been tough on local businesses. To help businesses adapt to the new rules and changing requirements, Development Services staff will delay some current work to go to local businesses for site visits.

“Business owners have a lot on their mind with scheduling and managing the financial impact of COVID and closures,” said Shane Hope, Development Services Director. “We want to connect them to accurate information and where to get supplies like masks and other protective things they might need so they can reopen and customers can feel good about going inside and doing business with them.”

These visits aren’t punitive and the city isn’t handing out tickets. Staff will inform workers and owners on the guidelines.

Last week, the City sent all 2200 business owners a postcard with links to useful information about grants, loans, and additional support. Last Friday, staff began the site visits. Teams will focus on restaurants, bars, retail and personal services like salons.

Business can set up a time with Development Services team members by calling 425.771.0220. The team will also make spot visits around town. Business owners can also check the City’s business support page at www.edmondswa.gov/covid-business. It is updated frequently.
