Essential Workforce – Police. Your police department is working hard to ensure public safety during this challenging time. Law enforcement’s primary role is to help educate people about how to comply with orders to stay at home, and as of May 18, comply with the King County Health Department directive to wear masks. Our police department is educating residents on how to keep themselves safe, how to keep their families safe and, most importantly, to keep the rest of the community safe, especially our vulnerable populations.
Our community has shown it understands the severity of the situation and we are all doing what we can to keep ourselves, families, and neighbors safe and healthy.
Essential Workforce – Public Works. Observing principles of social distance, Public Works is operating as an essential workforce during Governor Inslee’s Executive Order.
Declaration of Emergency. A City of Normandy Park Declaration of Emergency is still in effect. The City of Normandy Park Recreation Center, field rentals, playground equipment, active recreation, park restrooms, city park car lots, and City Hall are closed to the public. All programs will re-open when Highline Public Schools re-open for regular student attendance. City employees will work from home during this period with limited, socially-distanced exceptions. Employees will be a home for 14 days if any fever or COVID-related symptoms are noted. All city meetings are cancelled during this period, unless held remotely, consistent with OPMA. All business with City Hall will be by remote Zoom appointment and/or arranged drop-off only.
Wearing masks. Observing care for others, masks should be worn in group situations in public places. N95 masks are not required. Starting May 18, the King County Health Department directs that wearing such masks is mandatory in certain group situations.
Read about the mask requirements in this circular: https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/health/covid-19/care/masks.aspx.
There is no criminal, civil, or financial penalty for failing to wear a face-covering in the settings identified, but it is imprudent, selfish, and uncivil not to do so.
