Guidance for Food Establishments During the Temporary Closure

For Business Owners

  • The state’s coronavirus website has information to help sort through other benefits that may be available to you, such as paid family leave, workers compensation, and resources for small businesses 
  • Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) has developed a list of resources that might help address the financial impacts of the coronavirus, including mortgage assistance, financial resources, and financial scams.

For Employees

  • Employment Security Department
  • Washington State Department of Labor & Industries: Paid Sick Leave
  • The federal stimulus package included about $1,200 per person. This money has not been distributed yet, but some scammers are trying to take advantage of people. Remember—the government will not ask you to pay anything up front to get this money. No fees. No charges. No nothing. The government will not call to ask for your Social Security number, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer.
