King County Approved for Phase 2

This article has been archived.

On June 19, King County's Phase 2 plan was approved by the WA Department of Health, allowing an expansion of retail operations and dining opportunities, additional professional services, as well as other activities.

The new phase (click for details) now allows up to 50% usage of indoor seating capacity at restaurants, and 50% of outdoor dining (both with tables at 6-foot spacing). It also allows social and recreational gatherings with up to 5 people outside your household per week.

Public Health - Seattle & King County emphasizes that it will still be important to maintain the safety principles that led to the success against the outbreak, such as: continuing physical distancing, minimizing contact with others outside the home, frequent hand washing or sanitizer, and use of cloth face coverings in public.

Each Washington County is moving through the four-phased “Safe Start” process at its own pace, depending on how much success it has had in slowing the virus. Counties must remain in each stage of Safe Start for at least three weeks, until health authorities can measure their progress towards eliminating the virus.
