King County Moves into Modified Phase 1 - All Construction Now Allowed

On Friday, June 5 the Washington State Department of Health accepted the King County plan to allow for limited openings of recreational, social, business, and construction related activities in a modified Phase 1 of the Governor Jay Inslee's Safe Start reopening plan. A description of the activities allowed under the modified phase 1 is available on King County’s website.

Mercer Island expects that new construction work will begin shortly; all construction work remains subject to established COVID-19 Job Site Requirements.

The Washington Department of Labor and Industries will remain as the agency responsible for enforcement of the job site requirements. If a community member witnesses a violation of the job site requirements, please contact Labor and Industries (L&I) at L&I DOSH Safety Call Center 1-800-423-7233 or via e-mail to
