New statewide face covering requirements begin July 7

Gov. Jay Inslee and Secretary of Health John Wiesman announced yesterday that beginning July 7, businesses must require face coverings of all customers and may not serve any customer if they do not comply. This expands an earlier face covering order that went into effect on June 26, and requires all Washingtonians to wear face coverings in public indoor places or outdoors when unable to maintain six feet of distance from others. The expanded order, along with guidance to help businesses understand how to implement it, will be issued early next week.

The governor also ordered a two-week statewide pause on advancing counties from their current phases under Safe Start. Counties will remain in their current phase until at least July 16. Kitsap County is in Phase 2 of the Safe Start recovery plan. Read the release here.
