Mayor’s Proclamation of Emergency

Proclamation from Mayor Ferrell:
“The seriousness of the #coronavirus #COVID-19 threat affecting our community has risen in the region in the past few days, and I have decided to issue a Proclamation of Emergency.
This Proclamation gives us the ability to override routine procedures to quickly and effectively respond to public health threats.
I have also set up an Outbreak Advisory Team made up of department directors as well as other key staff members which will meet once a week going forward to discuss the evolving threat. We are also canceling commission meetings at City Hall through March 31, and we’re planning for members to participate via the web or phone for Council Committee meetings.
The safety and health of our community is our top priority during this threat to public health in Federal Way.”
