The City of Yakima is updating the status of its facilities in the wake of restrictions announced yesterday, Sunday, by Gov. Jay Inslee. The restrictions, in place for four weeks, are due to a rapid spike of COVID-19 cases statewide.
- The City of Yakima Municipal Court customer service window at the Richard A. Zais, Jr. Law & Justice Center is closed until further notice.
- Municipal Court in-person hearings and jury trials continue to operate as scheduled. The court began phasing those in during the month of September.
- The Yakima Police Department customer service window is closed and no new concealed pistol license (CPL) applications will be accepted until further notice. That window had re-opened in September.
- Yakima Air Terminal-McAllister Field is operating and flights continue as scheduled. Protective measures remain in place.
- The Harman Center is closed until further notice. It had re-opened in October for health and wellness classes only.
- The status of Lions Pool is currently being evaluated.
The remaining City-owned facilities continue to be closed to public access, including Yakima City Hall and the Public Works facility.
“The status of City of Yakima facilities may change as we continue to ensure our compliance with restrictions announced yesterday by Gov. Jay Inslee, as well as our response to the ongoing pandemic,” said Communications & Public Affairs Director Randy Beehler.
