Pause on visits to Administration Building remains in place

COVID-19 infection rates remain high In our region and we need to be vigilant in our efforts to slow the spread of the virus and make our workplaces safer for employees and the people we serve.

Many King County employees remain under the Executive’s mandatory telework order through July 5, 2021, where their work and operations allow for it, and heightened safety measures and protocols have been instituted for those delivering in-person services.

The county also continues to restrict employee access to its facilities and has extended the pause on employees accessing the Administration Building until further notice. Only those employees who are approved by their supervisor or manager to report to the Administration Building for operational reasons are permitted inside. Other employees are not allowed in the Administration Building until further notice. (However, employees can continue to use the tunnel access to the Courthouse and Goat Hill Garage.)

By limiting the number of people in our facilities and on our roads and transit system, we can keep our worksites safer for those employees delivering in-person services.

Until restrictions are further eased, the Facilities Management Division (FMD) is unable to provide an exact date for the Administration Building closure. However, FMD will ensure that everyone has plenty of time to collect personal items and finalize preparations before the closure.

Please continue to follow all King County policies, state mandates, and Public Health guidance to guard against COVID-19. As always, thank you for doing your part to help keep our community healthy.
