SAFE START—COVID 19
The City of Sequim and Clallam County have moved into Phase 2 of Governor Jay Inslee’s Safe Start program effective June 1, except for overnight camping.
Phase 2 allows for outdoor recreation involving five or fewer people outside your household. This allowed the City to open additional amenities at Carrie Blake Park including four of the eight pickleball courts, the shuffleboard and bocce ball courts, the horseshoe pits, the softball fields for practice, no games or tournaments are allowed. The fishing pond was opened during Phase 1.
Gatherings with no more than five persons from outside your household are allowed with the appropriate social distancing.
More businesses are now allowed to open, with safety protocols, including non-essential retail, restaurants at 50% capacity, and professional services. Read the full Safe Start plan from Governor Inslee.
The City and County will be in Phase 2 for at least three weeks, possibly longer. To continue to contain the spread of the coronavirus, it is important to still maintain safety protocols, so we do not experience a surge of the disease.
