Washington Adopts Updated CDC Mask Guidance – No Masks for Vaccinated
"The vaccine is your ticket to freedom." Gov. Jay Inslee
Effective immediately, fully vaccinated adults no longer need to wear a mask in Washington State. Following the announcement earlier today by the CDC, Gov. Inslee announced that Washington will fully adopt the CDC's updated masking guidance.
Businesses will retain the right to require masks and masks will be required on public transportation. The updated guidance does not apply to health care settings like hospitals, long-term care, or doctor’s offices; correctional facilities, homeless shelters, or schools.
