Tuesday, June 29 Governor Inslee provided a statement on the state's upcoming economic reopening which is to begin at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, June 30. On this date all industries covered under the Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery may return to usual capacity and operations, with limited exceptions for large indoor events (any event with more than 10,000 simultaneous participants in an indoor, enclosed space.) Please note that some exceptions will include schools and childcare centers that will continue to have some facial coverings and physical distancing requirements.
Facial coverings will no longer be required for fully vaccinated individuals unless a business chooses to enforce face coverings. Unvaccinated individuals will still be required to wear face coverings.
For more details, visit the Governor's website for up to date information.
