Most Recent COVID-19 Update, Resources and Ways to Support the Downtown Community

The Olympia Downtown Alliance continues to track the COVID-19 situation to support the Downtown business community

Yesterday, Governor Inslee issued a Stay At Home order that will go into place on Wednesday at midnight. Washington State residents should not venture outside, but there are still some things that are allowed, including:

  • Going outside for a walk or bike ride, provided you remain six feet away from others, and maintain proper social distancing.
  • Going to work anywhere categorized as an “essential” business — that includes medical professions, news media, certain construction projects, restaurants, grocery or convenience store workers, pharmacists, bankers, and more. You can see the full list of essential businesses as laid out by Gov. Inslee’s office here.
  • Leaving your home to buy groceries, or “products necessary to maintain safety, sanitation, and essential maintenance” of your residence.
  • Going to an in-person medical appointment.
  • Picking up a takeout order from any restaurant still open (delivery service is still available as well).
  • Providing assistance, transportation, or care to a family member or friend in another residence.
  • Caring for a pet in another residence.
