Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Well, spring has fully arrived, and thankfully the warmer weather is keeping many of us outdoors.  That is indeed fortunate, as it’s very likely that King County will “roll back” to Phase 2 on Monday (more on this below).

And we have shifted to a new situation when it comes to vaccine availability.  A few weeks ago, people were desperate to find available vaccine appointments when demand greatly exceeded the supply.  Now, the supply is exceeding the demand, despite the fact that only 41% of King County residents are fully vaccinated.  I have included more information below on this new vaccine surplus, as well as on a disturbing new trend of younger people being hospitalized with the virus, so-called “breakthrough” infections and more.

Also below is some important information for restaurant owners on applying for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF), including an informational webinar taking place tomorrow morning at 10 a.m.

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 

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
