SEQUIM — The work of members of the Public Works Department has been redirected to sanitize several public spaces, city officials said last week.
The crew is using a solution recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) — five tablespoons of bleach per gallon of water — to spray down benches, railings, seating areas and all touchable surfaces from Whitefeather Way to River Road.
Once sprayed, the solution is left to air dry.
Public Works Director David Garlington reminded community members in a press release to follow Gov. Jay Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order to leave their homes only for such essential services as doctor appointments and trips to the grocery store or pharmacy.
It’s safe to go for walks or bike rides as long as social distancing of 6 feet or more is practiced, he said.
“We want to make sure that the public is as safe as possible when they are in public spaces and will be sanitizing on an on-going basis as long as the 2019 novel coronavirus is a threat,” Garlington said.
