COVID Proclamations Rescinded–Including Job Search, Food Charges
This week, a rare occurrence as several COVID proclamations have been rescinded by Gov. Inslee.
One of them applies to unemployment recipients; starting July 3 they will have to resume the 'normal' requirements of job searches to continue getting funds.
Mandatory job searches were suspended for unemployed workers during the pandemic many months ago. Now, the requirements return. They include, according to ESD:
- "At least three approved job search activities each week if you are receiving regular unemployment insurance benefits or Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC).
- At least one approved job search activity each week if you are receiving Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA). We strongly encourage those receiving PUA to still complete at least three each week."
These requirements will begin for the week of July 4-10 and continue onward.
The other rescinded proclamation has to do with fees charged by food delivery services such as Uber Eats, Door Dash, and others.
You may remember last November 19th, limits were placed upon fees charged to restaurants for food delivery by these third-party businesses. The rescinded proclamation goes into effect immediately, allowing the delivery companies to restore previous charges.
This could result in some price increases for food delivered to people by these couriers.
