Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery

June 30 State Reopening

Effective June 30, 2021, most businesses and organizations in Washington state will be able to operate as they did prior to the pandemic and will not be required to maintain capacity limits, provided they follow workplace safety requirements from the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I). Keep in mind that any business or organization may choose to maintain COVID-19 precautions, including requiring patrons to wear a mask. In some circumstances, mask are still required. Please respect the rules of any business or organization that you enter. 

COVID-19 is still spreading in our communities, even as the state reopens. The best protection from the virus is to get vaccinated. Find a vaccine location near you
