Inslee extends Safe Start proclamation, issues additional guidance

Gov. Jay Inslee announced the extension of the Safe Start proclamation until August 6. This extension clarifies the interaction between Safe Start and Department of Health Secretary John Wiesman's facial coverings order.

The governor also announced additional clarification for restaurant and taverns in Phases 2 and 3. This comes as more counties move forward under Washington’s Safe Start recovery plan

Under this guidance, bar-style seating and live music are hereby prohibited in Phase 2 and Phase 3. Additionally, restaurants and taverns in Phase 2 or beyond are now permitted to resume self-service buffets, salad bars, salsa bars, and other similar communal food sources and drink stations, subject to business adherence to safety standards. Read the full memo.


Visitors to long-term care facilities remain restricted

The state Department of Social and Health Services is currently working on a plan for a safe, phased reopening of facilities to outside visitors. More details on this plan will be released in the coming weeks.
