Inslee announces new standards for Washington airports 

Gov. Jay Inslee announced yesterday that Washington is setting new requirements for commercial airports and recommendations for airlines. 

The guidance will require face coverings in the airport; signage and spacing for physical distancing; protective barriers between travelers and workers; sanitizer and disinfectant protocols; and that airport vendors and businesses follow state and county health agency requirements.

It also strongly encourages airlines to establish health screening questionnaires for passengers regarding potential COVID-19 exposure or symptoms, and to require passengers abide by face covering and physical distancing requirements in order to be issued a boarding pass.

The Kitsap County Pathway to Recovery Playbook was updated today to include the new requirements. See the governor's Medium site for more details.
