Governor Inslee has issued several orders including the Stay Home – Stay Healthy proclamation, 20-25, prohibiting people from leaving their home or place of residence except to conduct or participate in (1) essential activities, and/or (2) employment in providing essential business services. If you have concerns and would like to report suspected violations of this order, visit the webpage Violations of the Governor’s Proclamation and follow these guidelines:
- If this report is about an individual or private group that is not following the proclamation, contact your local law enforcement agency through the County Dispatch at 509-773-4545. DO NOT call 911. Public gatherings remain banned at this time.
- If this report is about a business that is not following the proclamation, fill out the form on this webpage. This report will be forwarded to the appropriate agency to review the violation for the appropriate response.
People can still participate in activities such as bike rides, gardening, and dog walking — as long as they follow social distancing rules and stay within their local area. The less travel, and the less time we spend in public, the more lives we will save.
The state Department of Commerce is providing guidance and assistance to businesses on whether they can be considered essential and other resources they may access to help during this time.
