All of the information you submit to this site is public information and may be released per the Washington State Public Records Act.  

For eviction related complaints please go here.

This form is ONLY for “Safe Start” or Health Officer Order violations observed in Businesses.  We encourage any individual to also report Safe Start or Health Officer order violations to Washington State.

FOR INDIVIDUAL OR PRIVATE GROUP SUSPECTED VIOLATIONS: Consistent with the Governor’s Safe Start order, you may report any suspected violations by individuals or private groups to your local law enforcement agency.  DO NOT call 911.  Please refer to the law enforcement telephone number listed on the complaint form.

 Governor Jay Inslee, the Washington State Department of Health, Jefferson County's Health Officer Tom Locke, and the Dept. of Labor & Industries have issued orders that require businesses to adopt appropriate health and safety measures for staff and customers and require individuals to wear a face covering when in most public spaces.  Links to this information can be found on this page.

 If this report is about a business that is not following the COVID-19 mandated requirements fill out the form found in the link below.  This report will be forwarded to the appropriate agency to review the suspected violation for the appropriate response.

We are aware many businesses are posting on social media their intention not to follow the most recent directive requiring proof of vaccination to dine/drink indoors.

I acknowledge I have read and understand the above information by continuing to the Covid complaint form.

Please review the essential business page and/or the Safe Start page to confirm the business or function is not approved for the appropriate phase.
