City Lifts COVID-19 State of Emergency
November 18, 2022 - In a proclamation issued today, Mayor Nice and City Manager Bon lifted the City's COVID-19 State of Emergency, which had been in effect since March of 2020. The Island's original State of Emergency was issued in March of 2020 after a statewide proclamation from Washington Governor Jay Inslee declared that a state of emergency existed in all counties in Washington.
The City lifted Mercer Island's State of Emergency following the same action by the State on October 31, 2022, after thirty-four months of being in effect. The State of Emergency is no longer needed to preserve public health, safety, and welfare.
Please see Proclamation No. 300, which lifts the State of Emergency, for more information.
