Nordstrom opening Spokane locations

UPDATED: Wed., June 10, 2020

Nordstrom Inc. is opening its Spokane-area stores Thursday, after a three-month long closure.

The Seattle-based retailer is opening its store at River Park Square in downtown Spokane and Nordstrom Rack in Spokane Valley as part of a phased approach that includes additional safety measures, according to a company release.

Nordstrom is providing masks to employees and customers, and implementing social distancing guidelines.

The retailer will continue curbside service at its full-line stores, which includes the River Park Square location.

United requires health screenings

United Airlines is requiring its passengers to complete a self-assessment health screening before flying, one of the furthest reaching efforts among carriers to keep the COVID-19 outbreak in check as travel resumes.

Customers will have to confirm they haven’t experienced coronavirus symptoms two weeks before flying and complete a checklist based on recommendations from the Cleveland Clinic, United said Wednesday.

Passengers must wear face coverings on board.

Customers who cannot meet the requirements and choose not to travel will be able to reschedule their flights, the Chicago-based airline said.
