To protect the health and safety of our community, Mayor Pauly is issuing a curfew for three nights (from 8 p.m.-6 a.m.) starting 8 p.m. June 1 and ending 6 a.m. June 4. During the curfew hours, community members should refrain from traveling in and through Issaquah.
There are no verifiable threats to Issaquah at this time. However, the curfew is a precaution following continued looting across the region. We are constantly in touch with our regional partners, and are prepared to respond, as needed, to uphold community safety.
Out of an abundance of caution, this curfew applies to the entire City limits.
We are asking all community members to voluntarily abide by the curfew. The City does not intend to enforce the curfew, except for violations that result in risk to public health and safety.
Meanwhile, people are still allowed to travel if they are going to/from work, or need emergency or urgent medical care during the curfew.
The curfew does not require essential businesses to close. However, essential businesses will not be allowed to have customers during the curfew hours. Business owners are strongly encouraged to close and secure their place of business and stay in a safe place.
Thank you for your help by staying home and staying safe.
