10:37 am: Another closure has just been announced due to a positive COVID-19 test. We received this from West Seattle Food Bank chief Executive Officer Fran Yeatts::
The West Seattle Food Bank will be closed for sales today, Thursday, November 12th. Last night we learned that a Food Bank helper tested positive for COVID-19. We’re not too concerned about exposure as everyone was wearing masks, being socially distant, and being outside most of the time, but we want to make sure we follow all protocols and keep everyone safe.
We will keep you all informed as we determine our operational status for the future. Anyone who needs food today can call 211 for additional resources.
We thank you all for your support and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause the community. We will work diligently to reopen as soon as possible.
As noted in our daily preview, given the worsening pandemic, the governor has scheduled a speech to the state tonight at 5:30 a.m. In the meantime, you can always access all the breaking news regarding pandemics by clicking here.
