SEATTLE — A new report from the Downtown Seattle Association shows how COVID-19 is impacting businesses not only in Seattle, but throughout the Puget Sound.

About 1,300 business have closed throughout the region, including more than 100 in Seattle.

People who visit downtown Seattle told KIRO 7′s Deedee Sun that it’s clear that businesses are struggling.

“Ghost town,” said Chester Grays, works downtown. “It feels empty.”

The report from the DSA says many of the 112 businesses across Seattle that have shut down permanently many were downtown.
