Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center
CLOSED THROUGH MAY 4, 2020
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is closely monitoring the developments with the global spread of COVID-19. King County Public Health officials released a statement recommending mitigation measures and encouraging workplaces to maximize working from home. As a health-focused organization, we feel it is important to be aligned with the practices recommended by our local public health departments.
We are encouraging Foundation employees to work from home and therefore the Gates Foundation Discovery Center will be closed at least through May 4, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates as we have them.
We appreciate your understanding.
We are next to the Seattle Center on the corner of 5th Avenue N. and Republican Street.
