This is a follow-up to our COVID-19 outlook survey in May. Whether or not you took that survey, we appreciate your responses below. Information gathered in this survey will help inform Downtown Seattle Association policy, advocacy, and our collective understanding of the impact of the coronavirus on different Seattle industries and perspectives on reopening. It is intended for organizations of any size or industry. The survey is also for any business in Seattle, not just downtown. 

The information gathered will be aggregated and any attribution to a specific business or individual will be held confidential. Please note that only one response per company is needed.

Those who enter their contact information will be entered to win a $150 gift certificate to Aerlume-Seattle near Pike Place Market. Aerlume is now open for both indoor and outdoor dining. Visit their website for more information.
