Work crews sanitize city public areas

The City of Sequim has redirected the work of members of the Public Works Crew to sanitize several public spaces, city officials said this week.

The crew is using a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended solution of five tablespoons of bleach per gallon of water and is spraying 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 reminds community members to follow Gov. Jay Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order to only leave their homes for essential services, such as doctor appointments and trips to the grocery store or pharmacy.

Residents may go for a walk or a bike ride as long as they practice social distancing of 6 feet or more, 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.

For more information, call the the Sequim Public Works Department at 360-683-4908.
