As of February 1, 2021, per The Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery, the Puget Sound Region (Snohomish/King/Pierce) has moved to Phase 2:
In Phase 2 under Indoor Entertainment Establishments it states Indoor Event Spaces may host meetings at a maximum of 25% capacity. Venues must ensure strict adherence to all measures established by the Governor’s miscellaneous venue guidance, the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I), Coronavirus (COVID-19) Prevention and the Washington State Department of Health Workplace and Employer Resources & Recommendations.
Please note we will be in Phase 2 for two weeks and then the State will reevaluate if we are still meeting 3 out of the 4 COVID-19 metrics. If we are, we will stay in Phase 2 or potentially move to Phase 3. However if we are not meeting 3 out of the 4 metrics, we would fall back in to Phase 1 and meetings would not be permitted.
If the meeting organizer agrees to adhere to all the guidelines listed below, please contact us to request meeting space:
- Masks are required for everyone in the meeting room. 6-foot social distancing must be adhered to during the meeting both while seated and when moving around the room.
- Each room is limited to 25% capacity or 200 people, whichever is less, as long as six feet of physical distance can be maintained by all attendees.
- It is the client’s responsibility to assign at least one “COVID-19 Program Supervisor” to be present during the meeting to ensure masking and social distancing practices are enforced and practiced by all event attendees.
- The client must pre-register all meeting attendees, keep their contact information on file, and make it available to the Port of Seattle in case of a COVID-19 outbreak.
- Congregating outside the meeting room in the mezzanine hallway is not allowed. Meeting attendees must abide by the one-way ingress and egress signs.
If catering is provided for the meeting, the following procedures are required:
- All food and beverage must stay in the meeting room.
- Food or beverage from the caterer is not allowed in the mezzanine hallway.
- The COVID-19 Program Supervisor must release people in small groups to go through the buffet line.
- While waiting in line for the buffet, guests must adhere to the 6-foot social distancing guidelines.
