Yesterday, Governor Inslee announced a 3 week extension on COVID business restrictions. He was also joined by Department of Commerce Director Lisa Brown, who announced an additional 50 Million which will double the number of Washington small businesses that will receive aid. Industries recently shut down, such as restaurants and fitness centers, as well as businesses that have been devastatingly impacted throughout the pandemic, like music and event venues, have been prioritized. Applications are open but the deadline is the FRIDAY - don't wait until then to apply. read more

Your Maple Valley Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce is advocating for you!! We have signed on to an Association of Washington Business (AWB) and Grassroots Alliance letter that was delivered to the Governor today. In summary, we are urging the Governor to consider both the public health consequences and the economic consequences of the latest restrictions. Instead of banning all indoor activities in some industries, we are urging him to consider a universal 25% occupancy restriction for each identified industry. We know these are tough times for many and we also urge you to reach out directly to the Governor's office and our local legislators to let them know how these restrictions are affecting your business. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call Erica at 253.455.4031 read more
