Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Update: Monday, May 4, 2020
Open Public Meetings Act Proclamation
Meydenbauer Center staff has been closely monitoring information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Governor Inslee’s office regularly.
On Friday, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee extended the Stay Home, Stay Healthy executive order through May 31, 2020, and laid out a phased plan for reopening the state. The executive order requires every Washingtonian to stay home unless they need to pursue an essential activity. Additionally, this action bans all gatherings for social, spiritual and recreational purposes, as well as closes all businesses except essential businesses. In response to this directive, our facility will remain closed until at least June 1, 2020. During this time, access to our building will be restricted and all building entrances secured. Our administrative offices will not be open, though staff may be reached virtually.
The Stay Home, Stay Healthy order denotes that all people in Washington State are prohibited from participating in public and private gatherings of any number of people for social, spiritual and recreational purposes. Under the phased plans released by Governor Inslee, gatherings of 50 people or less will not be allowed until Phase 3 of the plan, which will not start until at least June 15, 2020.
Larger gatherings of over 50 people will be allowed as part of Phase 4, the final phase of the reopening. The earliest possible date for this phase is currently July 6, 2020. Meydenbauer Center is currently working diligently to ensure that our facility is prepared to reopen as safely as possible when we are able. We are working to ensure we will be able to meet all of the necessary sanitation and social distancing protocols.
As updates related to the spread of COVID-19 in Washington and plans for the phased reopening of the state become available from the Governor’s office, we will update stakeholders on any further changes in our operation.
