 November 16, 2020 --- WA State Governor Inslee’s COVID-19 Guidance

 

To slow the spread of rapidly increasing COVID-19 cases in our State and ensure that hospital and medical systems are not overwhelmed, we are taking the very difficult but necessary steps to protect public health.

 

We recognize this will cause financial hardship for many businesses and the governor and staff are exploring ways to mitigate the impacts. From midnight on Monday, November 16, 2020 through Monday, December 14, 2020 all counties in Washington rollback to the restrictions outlined below.

 

Restriction modifications for all counties effective midnight on Monday, November 16, 2020 unless otherwise noted. If the activity is not listed, it should follow its current guidance. All K-12/higher education, health care, and childcare are exempt from the new restrictions and will follow current guidance.
