Clallam County will advance in reopening plan, allowing more restaurants to add indoor dining amid COVID-19

Beginning Monday, February 15th 2021 Clallam County will enter into Phase 2 of Governor Inslee’s Roadmap to Recovery!

What does that mean?·    

In Phase 2;
*Restaurants and indoor fitness centers can reopen indoor dining at 25%.     
*Sports competitions may also resume in Phase 2 with limited spectators.   
*Wedding and funeral ceremonies are able to increase their capacities from current limits as well.

Clallam County’s COVID-19 cases have been in the moderate range recently which means Clallam County has one of the lowest case rates in the state, along with Jefferson and San Juan Counties.

The Governor’s regionalized evaluation system, however, put Clallam and Jefferson Counties into a region with Kitsap and Mason Counties that have had dramatically higher case rates which prevented us from being able to open our restaurants and fitness centers.

To advance from Phase 1 to Phase 2, our region (Clallam, Jefferson, Kitsap and Mason) had to show a 10% decreasing trend in case rates; a 10% decrease in COVID hospital admission rates; an ICU occupancy rate that’s less than 90%; and a test positivity rate of less than 10%.The region collectively has now achieved that.

Armstrong Marine USA of Port Angeles, Washington Launches New Identity as BRIX MARINE

Since 1991, Armstrong Marine has earned a solid reputation for pioneering and crafting the world’s most rugged aluminum catamarans and workboats.

The company was founded in Canada and moved to Port Angeles, WA in 2001. Joining Bryton Marine Group in 2017 fortified the company’s focus on their Core Values and a strategic plan securing their future.
“Our team has developed strong momentum with our boat portfolios and customers. As we look to the future, Brix Marine will honor the legacy we have built and move beyond to deliver exceptional custom boats,” said Perry Knudson, Managing Director.


Brix literally means the scientific measure of sweetness in liquid. This translates well to the high-performance boats the company is known for. “BRIX is more than a sweet riding hull,” said Knudson. “Our custom projects begin with the first communication and the relationship continues after the boat is delivered. BRIX is committed to an owner-centric approach.”


BRIX Marine has another important target. “We want to be the best place to work in our community,” said Knudson. BRIX employs master level craftsmen in the disciplines required to build welded aluminum boats. The company invests in defining career paths and training employees to gain the skills needed to advance in their fields.


The BRIX team will broaden and diversify its portfolio of welded aluminum boats, known as being “first in cats.” The newly redefined custom recreational portfolio is in high demand, and BRIX Marine is bringing this same innovative approach to other key markets. “Our luxury water taxi designs are raising the standards for passenger vessels as seen with the recent launch for Liberty National Golf Club.


The research vessel Bob & Betty Beyster we delivered in 2019 earned a
Workboat Magazine award as a Significant Boat of the Year. That design is reshaping our research vessel line-up,” commented Perry Knudson. “We have a lot of exciting things on the horizon. This new identity represents who we are and where we’re going.”

BRIX Marine will continue to grow and operate in Port Angeles, WA.
