We take the safety of everyone involved in Seattle Restaurant Week seriously.
We encourage everyone to stay updated and informed about local coronavirus cases by visiting the official King County’s COVID page.
Participating venues will offer takeout, ready-to-heat, delivery, meal boxes, and indoor and outdoor dining as permissible by public health guidelines.
Starting October 25, 2021, King County will require that customers and attendees at indoor restaurants and bars show proof that they are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before entering. If unvaccinated, patrons may provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test done in the last 72 hours by an FDA-approved test. You can learn more here.
Public Health – Seattle & King County recommends that everyone wear masks in indoor public settings, including restaurants, while not eating or drinking.
The best way to keep our community safe is to get a vaccine, which is free with no appointment needed, and available to everyone aged 12 and older. Find and schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments at the Vaccine Locator.
Need help? Call the hotline at 1-833-VAX-HELP (833-829-4357), then press #. Language assistance is available. You can also text your zip code to 438-829 (GET VAX) or 822-862 (VACUNA) for vaccine locations near you.
Early testing is important to help prevent COVID-19 from spreading to friends, family, and the community. If you have a sign/symptom of COVID-19 or were exposed to someone with COVID-19, find out where you can get tested in King County here.
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 know that together we can keep each other healthy!
