The Washington State Employment Security Department (ESD) has employer and worker assistance resources to support economic retention and recovery related to COVID-19 coronavirus:

The ESD can provide support in the form of unemployment benefits. For employers that want to keep from losing highly-trained employees, these unemployment benefits can be received through, or while covered by, Shared Work, Partial Unemployment and Standby (which allow certain workers to collect unemployment while remaining with their employers and not actively seeking other jobs). Visit: https://esd.wa.gov/newsroom/covid-19

ESD’s Paid Family and Medical Leave program can provide paid leave benefits for Washington workers who need to take time off from work due to a serious health condition or to care for a family member with a serious health condition. Certification by a healthcare provider is required for applications for Paid Family and Medical Leave due to a serious health condition. Visit: https://paidleave.wa.gov/

If COVID-19 disrupts a Washington business and causes a mass layoff or closure, ESD and its local workforce development board partners can respond with Rapid Response services and funding to help impacted workers get connected to unemployment benefits and re-employment services, including re-training, worker support services, and referrals to other social services.

Closure of Porcupine Bay Campground, Day-Use, and Boat Launch at Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area

Coulee Dam, WA —Beginning at 12:01 am April 24, 2017, and remaining until further notice, the Superintendent has closed all federal land located within the Porcupine Bay Campground and Boat Launch area under the authority granted by 36 CFR §1.5.  This closure is due to a landslide of the access road that took place on April 2, 2017 which prevents all vehicle access to the campground and associated area. This closure includes all vehicle, horse, and foot traffic, as well as all shoreline access encompassing all federal land Porcupine Bay Campground and Boat Launch from the park boundary to the waterline. 

Heavy spring rains have greatly impacted northeastern Washington this year causing landslides and washing out roads and bridges. Local and State Departments of Transportation are working to make repairs as safely and quickly as possible, however, hillside stabilization projects like the Porcupine Bay Road project can take months. Plan your route carefully and be prepared for any changes that may occur.
