All construction, including new work, is now allowed
On June 19, Gov. Inslee announced that King County is approved for Phase 2 of the "Safe Start" re-opening plan. This means all construction activity in Bellevue is allowed, including new construction projects.
All construction sites will still be required to comply with the safety and health requirements outlined in the governor’s Phase 2 Construction COVID-19 Site Requirements. These requirements are necessary to ensure that city employees can safely perform inspections of construction projects.
The City of Bellevue shares the governor’s commitment to ensuring the health and safety of workers. To that end, the city has outlined expectations regarding site safety measures and inspections in order to facilitate continuing construction work in a safe and timely manner.
The Washington State Department of Labor and Industries’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) will enforce the governor’s COVID-19 jobsite safety and health requirements. Complaints may be submitted to the L&I Call Center (1-800-423-7233) or via e-mail to email@example.com.
