Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Although our biennial budget process is over, this will still be a busy week at the King County Council. We have our Committee of the Whole Meeting tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m., and I will also be serving as Vice-Chair at our meeting of the Community, Health and Housing Services Committee on Wednesday, December 2nd at 9:30 a.m. The Regional Policy Committee is also meeting on Wednesday, December 2nd at 3 p.m. Agendas, meeting materials, and call-in information will be available at the links above.

Although my team took a day off from sending out our enews last Thursday (Thanksgiving), the coronavirus did not hit pause this weekend, as you’ll see below.

To all of you who altered their normal holiday plans with family and friends to help curb the spreading of COVID, thank you. If you did see individuals outside of your household on this long holiday weekend, now is a perfect opportunity to re-commit to the tenets of social distancing we have come to know so well—staying home if at all possible, wearing your mask, and staying six feet away from others.

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at jeanne.kohl-welles@kingcounty.gov

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
