 Puget Sound and West Regions of the state which include King and Snohomish Counties, remain in Phase 2 of the Healthy Washington Plan.  Phase 2 allows for indoor dining at 25% capacity, indoor gatherings with five people outside of your household, and gyms to be open at 25% capacity. 

Vaccination Update 

Washington State is now in Phase 1B Tier 1 for vaccinations which means the vaccine is available to anyone 65 and older, and all people 50 and older who also live in a multigenerational household. 

People who are part of Phase 1A are still eligible to receive the vaccine; healthcare workers, first responders, long-term care facility residents and staff and other healthcare setting employees who are at risk of contracting COVID-19. Learn more on who gets the vaccine and when. 

Governor Announces Healthy Washington Recovery Plan

Governor Inslee has announced Healthy Washington, a two-phased COVID-19 recovery plan that will start January 11, 2021. Every region will begin with Phase 1, which aligns with the current restrictions that are in place for most counties today, with a few exceptions.
