The City of Spokane is committed to reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our community while continuing to provide critical City services and addressing the impacts of closures of schools, business and events.

A new “Healthy Washington” reopening plan has been announced, following a number of weeks under widespread restrictions that continue until Jan. 11. The state has been divided into eight regions, and the regions will have to achieve certain metrics to move toward greater opening.

Meanwhile, vaccine distribution has begun in Washington state.

Mayor Nadine Woodward is encouraging residents to wear a mask, limit their trips to only necessary outings, and support local businesses by using online, curbside, and take out options. She said the new reopening plan “gives people renewed hope and a goal certain to pursue every day.”

To accommodate restrictions, the City has made a variety of changes to its operations. Learn how to do business with the city on our page about current City service changes.

Helping Citizens

The impacts of the measures that have been instituted to help slow the spread of COVID-19 have created a hardship for some citizens. The state of Washington has committed that pandemic unemployment support will not expire at the end of December.

To help residents, the City has suspended late fees and water shut-offs for non-payment of City utility bills. Avista has announced that it is suspending power utility shut-offs during this time as well. Citizens can seek financial help with their energy bills and their City utility bills by calling SNAP at 456-SNAP. Spokane Public Schools is assisting with nutrition needs.

Assisting Restaurants

The City has started the #OrderUpSpokane campaign to encourage people to order take out from their favorite restaurants. 10-minute parking zones near restaurants in the City core will allow citizens and delivery drivers to efficiently pick up to-go orders. Check out this list of restaurants offering takeout and delivery options.
