Game day celebrations during COVID-19

This year, our game days, family gatherings and holidays will be a little different. And that’s hard. But there are lots of ways to be a little more together, even when we’re apart.

If you do choose to have friends or family over to your home to watch the game, there is a risk of spreading COVID-19. Wear masks throughout the game, and limit the number of guests based on the number allowed in your county per the Safe Start plan. Open windows to increase ventilation - bundle up as if you were at the stadium! Make sure you have room for guests to stay spread out and don’t share food or drinks. For more tips, see the safer gatherings checklist.

Inslee announces new state group for COVID-19 economic recovery

Gov. Jay Inslee this week introduced a new state effort to help communities recover from the social and economic damage wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Though the state continues to battle the deadly virus, the Washington Recovery Group will help strengthen the state’s recovery efforts. The new group will help state agencies coordinate with local governments, higher education and the private sector.

State agency experts will work with local stakeholders and tribal partners to implement recovery solutions and pathways. Those ideas and policy solutions will be presented to cabinet agencies and the Office of Financial Management. See the governor's news release for details.
