UPDATED: Face Masks Now Required throughout Washington State

June 29, 2020

Effective June 26, a statewide order requires individuals to wear a face covering in indoor public spaces such as stores, offices and restaurants. The order also requires face coverings outdoors when you can't stay 6 feet apart from others.

There are exemptions, including people with certain disabilities or health conditions, people who are deaf or hard of hearing, and children under the age of 5 (though it's encouraged to have children ages 3-5 wear a covering if possible). There are also situations when you can remove your face covering, such as when seated at a restaurant or when recreating alone.

You do not need to wear a cloth face covering in your home when you are only with people in your household, or when you are alone in your car. You do not need to wear one when you are outdoors and people are far apart.

King County recently sent reusable cloth facemasks to cities for those residents who don't already have suitable face coverings.  These masks are made of white cotton t-shirt material and have ear loops to secure them.  Councilmember Aletha Howes is handling the distribution of these masks and has set them out on her porch in ziploc packs containing two masks each.  We ask that you take only what you need, as we only received 400 masks.

King County enters Phase 2 with Safe Start

June 17, 2020

King County has just entered Phase 2 for reopening businesses as the Stay Home orders are phased out.  The County has posted a Safe Start page on its website detailing what is allowed in each phase.

To protect staff, the Town of Beaux Arts Village remains committed to minimizing face-to-face interactions between staff and the public and to practicing the social distancing recommended by Public Health.  In support of this goal, public meetings will continue to be held remotely until Phase 3, when gatherings of more than five are allowed in our area.  Until in-person meetings resume, all remote public meetings will include an option for public "attendance" by phone, and each meeting agenda will include instructions for connecting.

The Building Department continues to accept applications for new construction permits, to issue permits, and to require contractors to document their plans for maintaining a safe worksite.  To protect the safety of our residents and staff, no in-person application submittals will be accepted until further notice.  Please contact the Building Department for more information.

Please be assured that ALL emergency services, such as police and fire, remain active and in full force.  In addition, there are no impacts to utilities, including the Beaux Arts Water Department, at this time.

COVID-19 / Coronavirus Resources

March 04, 2020

King County is responding to the emergence of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our community and has activated the King County Emergency Operations Center to support Public Health, as well as to help coordinate the work of cities across King County.

Please visit our COVID-19 Special Notices / Information page for links to various websites that support these efforts and other useful information.

Most importantly, if you believe you have been exposed to or have symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Call your doctor – Do not go into the medical facility
  • Your doctor will make an assessment about next steps. If it is determined that you should be screened for COVID-19, your doctor will contact King County Public Health to make arrangements for screening.
  • Take all appropriate precautions.  If you are sick, stay home!  Wash your hands often, and do not touch your face.
