Governor Inslee announced substantial changes to the state’s reopening plan. Given the reduced level of COVID-19 activity in the state and the significant, and increasing, number of vaccinated individuals in our state, all counties moved to Phase 3 as of May 18, 2021. To keep updated on current guidance and restrictions, visit the state's Coronavirus.wa.gov website.

New guidance on masks, distancing, and vaccinations has been developed for employers and worksites.
