Washington travel advisory update

Gov. Jay Inslee today issued an update on the state's response to the COVID-19 pandemic concerning travel from abroad, including the United Kingdom.

The current travel advisory, issued on Nov. 13, recommends people arriving in Washington from other states or countries, including returning Washington residents, should practice self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival. These individuals should also limit their interactions to their immediate household. 

Washingtonians are encouraged to stay home or in their region and avoid non-essential
travel to other states or countries. Avoiding travel can reduce the risk of virus
transmission and bringing the virus back to Washington.

WA notify


WA Notify: How does it work?

When you enable WA Notify, your phone exchanges random, anonymous codes with the phones of people you are near who have also enabled WA Notify. The app uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to exchange these random codes without revealing any information about you.

If another WA Notify user you've been near in the last two weeks later tests positive for COVID-19 and adds their verification code to the app, you’ll get an anonymous notification that you’ve had a possible exposure. This lets you get the care you need quickly and helps prevent you from spreading COVID-19 to the people around you.

To enable WA Notify on an iPhone, go to Settings and click “Turn On Exposure Notifications." Select United States, then Washington. Android users can download the WA Notify app at the Google Play Store. Over 1.5 million Washingtonians are now participating.
