Business Update - Impacts of COVID-19 Business Operation Restrictions
All Social Grounds Fans and Customers:
Recently Governor Inslee imposed a State wide ordinance regarding dining-in for restaurants, bars and other relative businesses for King County. While sadly disappointed, we are understandably obligated to comply. After a couple of days of reduced hours and staff, and after great deliberation, we have decided to temporarily suspend daily operations. Our employees will be on standby until we feel it is feasible to continue to reactivate normal business hours.
We stand behind this decision for the well being of our employees and our customers. Ultimately this just makes responsible sense for the sake of our community. There is NO doubt we will return and only stronger for making this decision. We love our followers and fans and appreciate your patience during this time.
As many of you may know, we are a Faith based business, and as the owners place our foundation in our Christian principles. That said, we challenge to all who read this: Join us in being a light to our community. Regardless of our business, we ask that if you are healthy and able, you prepare yourselves to help those who might need it.
If you’re a person of Faith, you know where to place your focus. Go to church if you can or host friends in your home on-line. While we might not embrace the changing facts the news presents, we still hear it. Eventually, like now it has a negative impact on our mental health. So speak life and positive reinforcement to yourself and others. If someone needs your assistance because they’re at higher risk, look to help them where they need it.
Again, speak light. We will get through this together. Remember who we are as a people. We are resilient when United. We are all Americans and the world is watching how we deal with this crisis. In fact, we are Washingtonians and our country is watching. We are Washington Strong.
God’s blessings to all of you in health and love. We are BothellStrong!
