We take the safety of everyone involved in Seattle Restaurant Week seriously.
Participating venues will offer takeout, ready-to-heat, delivery, meal boxes, and indoor and outdoor dining as permissible by public health guidelines.
While dining rooms and outdoor dining in the Seattle area are allowed in a limited capacity, this should not be considered an endorsement to dine outside or inside. Studies indicate there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
To support our restaurant community, we are providing flexibility for each restaurant to make their own risk assessment, to decide what is best for them, and to help them weather this storm.
We encourage everyone to stay updated and informed about local coronavirus cases by visiting the official King County’s COVID page.
We know that together we can keep each other healthy!
