Washington's Recovery Plan: A safe return to public life

In his address to the state on Tuesday, Gov. Jay Inslee announced a framework for a gradual, data-driven, health-focused approach to safely returning to public life and work.

His plan focuses on: widely available testing and tracing of those who may have contracted COVID19 and obtaining necessary testing supplies; facilitating a safe start and transition to economic recovery; and increased support for those in need of food, housing, childcare and access to services.

The governor emphasized the top priority remains the effort to minimize COVID-19 infections and deaths. He did not lift his Stay Home, Stay Healthy order, but said in the coming days, as long as COVID-19 cases continue a steady decline, restrictions on some elective surgeries, outdoor recreation and construction may be lifted.

Read the rest of the plan on the Governor's Medium page or policy brief.
