Proclamation of Civil Emergency

Post Date:03/17/2020

Proclamation of

Civil Emergency

On February 29, 2020, the Governor of the State of Washington proclaimed that a State of Emergency exists in all counties in the State of Washington due to the outbreak of COVID-19; and 

On March 12, 2020, the Chelan-Douglas County Health Department declared, "At least 12 of Washington State's 39 counties are now reporting COVID-19 cases and our Health District shares a border with four of them, including the two most affected counties in the nation. There are almost certainly cases already in our communities, though they may be mild or non-symptomatic cases which are invisible yet still able to infect others. We do not yet have lab-confirmed cases." 

On March 13, 2020, President Trump issued a "Proclamation on Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak" 

The City of East Wenatchee (City), under the leadership of the Mayor, has implemented measures within City operations, services, and facilities to follow current recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

This incident is a threat to life and public health, which constitutes an emergency, and demands ongoing and further emergency action; and 

Public health, safety, and welfare are at risk such that further effortis needed to continue and expand operations to reduce the threat; and 

All available resources are committed to this event; and 

The City may require supplemental assistance; and 

The severity of this event may go beyond the capability of local resources; and 

The provisions of RCW 38.52.070, East Wenatchee Municipal Code 9.12.010, and other applicable law grant authority to the Mayor as contemplated in this proclamation; and 

The existing conditions warrant the proclamation of the existence of a civil emergency. 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JERRILEA CRAWFORD, Mayor of the City of East Wenatchee, do hereby proclaim that a civil emergency exists due to the COVID-19 pandemic, emergency operations are ongoing and in effect, and this necessitates the utilization of emergency powers granted under RCW 38.52.070, EWMC 9.12.010, and all applicable law. 

This proclamation shall remain in full force and effect until terminated by issuance of a subsequent written order. 

Signed by Mayor Jerrilea Crawford on March 16, 2020.
