Improving Indoor Air Quality

Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can significantly affect people's health, but Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies have shown that levels of air pollutants indoors may be anywhere from two to five times greater than outdoors, and in some cases more than 100 times greater.

Should I still wear a face mask and what are the rules?



Masks and physical distancing continue to play an important role in protecting the public from COVID-19 along with other mitigation measures like vaccination, improved ventilation, hand hygiene, and cleaning and disinfection.

Businesses are required to follow Washington State orders concerning face coverings:

  1. Secretary of Health’s Mask Order
  2. Labor & Industries (L&I) Workplace Requirements
  3. Governor Inslee’s Proclamation 20-25.14 and Guidance for Employers and Businesses

Businesses must post signage in a prominent location visible to patrons at each entry informing customers of face covering requirement. Click here to download a sign that can be used for this purpose, or use this Business Signage Toolkit from the Washington Department of Health.
