SODO BIA Office Protocols for COVID-19

With COVID-19, our staff will be following a hybrid system of working from home, but also coming into our office when necessary. Some positions within our staff are able to make arrangements to work from home, while others do require us to be present in SODO.

Erin Goodman, our Executive Director will be in and out of our office. If you have any concerns about the steps our City is taking during COVID-19, or any other questions she is always available to reach by email at or by cell phone at (206) 981-9877.

Lauren Ross, our Program Manager who focuses on Clean & Safe Outreach and Transportation issues, will continue her daily drive-thru around SODO throughout this time period. As businesses are closed, she will be checking for graffiti, break-ins and any unusual activity around businesses. If anything happens to your business please contact her through email at or by cell phone at (206) 218-4875.

Jillian Celich, our Communications & Events Coordinator will be working remotely on getting messaging out to you. We will not be having any events in the near future, but because of this, Jillian will be working on communication and on our business directory. Please let her know if you have any updates, or see any changes that need to be made on our website. She is also available through email at and by cell phone at (206) 960-3493.

Erika Wedge, our Office Manager will be supporting our work. Please contact her through email at if you have any questions.

We want you to know we are still here to support any needs you have as business, and that we are all in this together during this difficult time. Make sure you follow all steps that our City and Washington State Legislature is recommending to stay healthy!
