A 9 year property tax is now in play in King County as a way of paying for sweeping changes in the fight against the behavioral health crisis. I will transmit to the King County council of proposal for a new crisis care center's levy. The rate would be about $10 per month for the median priced home, which is around $800,000 in King County.

Residents, they want something to be done after what they said have been repeated issues of crime, so they have organized holding a rally not only to address the sexual assault, but also to address all the criminal issues they say have been happening around here.

King county's public health officer said that he'll be reviewing this within six months so he's hopeful that sometime next spring he'll be able to lift the order. No right can you wo w's eilly show. Neil thank you for walking us through this. Thanks so much for having me. Some business owners have already been doing this. And my next guest says having this consistent rule in place puts her on firmer ground. Carla leonardi owns cafe. Lago in seattle's montlake neighborhood carla. Thank you for joining us. And good morning angela. Thanks so much for having me in now you were at the table. As mayor durkan and county officials hashed out this new policy. What did you think when they first came to you with this proposal. I was absolutely a static. We've had that policy in a cafe. Lago since the first week in august We figured it out ourselves how to do it. Wasn't that hard. We did worry a bit about the legal implications of it if someone was going to be that upset about us to perhaps want to take the cord about it but we went ahead and did it anyway. So it's really great to have the county support backing us up in our our decision to do this. Do you know of other small business owners who were kind of hesitant about implementing a similar policy or chose not to because they had you know some pretty reasonable legal questions. Oh sure in a group. I belong to the seattle restaurant alliance. There were several restaurants who expressed concern who consulted with their lawyers and a few lawyers. Said no don't do this. Don't do it yet because you're putting yourself at risk. And so they chose not to but then there are view other lawyers who rented a different way who thought that as long as you made reasonable accommodations for religious purposes or medical reasons that you could implement the policy so it was. It was a bit of a risk. But i chose to take it mostly for the health of my employees and their families. So sounds like your staff is prepared for this. All my staff was they were the impetus for it. They were the ones who came to me and said can we do this with you. Know would you. Would you be willing to to have this at lago. They were more than willing to implement it. The hosts at the front door were willing to say okay. We're we can handle at asking for i d. i wouldn't have done it otherwise. Okay so so you think you do have the tools in place to verify patrons vaccination status will. Yeah i mean. We're not shacking ide- against the backs card haven't taken it to that point so there's room there for for someone to cheat it but we're going under the assumption that our customers are being straight up with us and you are hearing from some folks already this morning about what's going on and what's heading our way come october.

"The big news. Today you'll soon need to be vaccinated to go to your favorite bar or restaurant in king county or to go to live theater or here live music today. City and county officials announced a vaccine mandate for customers of non essential businesses. That's going to take effect in late october. Kyw reporter eilly show. Neil is here now to tell us more i- leash okay. Explain this for us. What is included. Indoor dining is included also indoor entertainment so establishments like museums theatres and indoor professional and college sports and then almost anything that's considered non essential so gyms conferences and also outdoor events with more than five hundred people and this takes effect october twenty fifth. So people have time to get vaccinated between now and then except for very small establishments restaurants with twelve or fewer seats for them. This won't take effect till december sixth. Okay so officials have put this date out a little bit so people do have time if you're not vaccinated yet you can get your sequence of vaccine shots by that date But what will customers need when they show up at the front door at one of these places in order to get in there a couple of options but the easiest is probably to have a photo of your vaccine part on your phone. But there's no requirement for you to have your id alongside your vaccine card. Some businesses might want them though especially repeat businesses like jim's. The state is working on an app that would streamline the process for people to show proof of vaccination and businesses to confirm that vaccination and that might be ready later this month or early next month right so a big question for folks working at clubs and restaurants and other non essential businesses. How is this going to be enforced. Sort of like mask mandates. It's really up to businesses to enforce it themselves. Some businesses think that's great That it will help them protect their employees others are not as pleased a trade organization that represents restaurants in washington state says. It's not fair that this makes different rules for different businesses based on size and they feel scapegoated and kind of singled out. It's possible that some businesses won't really make an effort to enforce this. We saw that with the mask mandate that there were parts of king county where restaurants and other businesses didn't make much of an effort about mask mandates. And they they might not with the vaccine mandate either interesting. At least we've been hearing for several weeks now. You and your colleagues have been reporting on this rise in Excuse me covert hospitalizations. What is the goal here for county officials with this new rule. Well they hope to keep people safe. People who are gathered an indoor spaces make sure that they're all vaccinated or have had a negative cova test recently and It's in part about keeping the customer safe in part about keeping employees at those businesses safe. There's also some thought that it might persuade some hold outs there. About three hundred thousand people in king county who are eligible to get vaccinated but haven't yet been vaccinated that they will be persuaded by this that. Oh if i want to go indoors to my favorite restaurant. I will need to get a vaccine. Yeah it's interesting. How the enforcement piece is going to work here. I can imagine there might be some more questions around matching up. Id's with vaccination cards anyway. We'll i'm sure we'll see how that plays out over time i- leash How long can people expect this new rule to be in effect for the king county. Public health said that they'll be revisiting.
