Inslee signs Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery proclamation

Gov. Jay Inslee yesterday signed the "Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery" proclamation, which was initially announced last week. The new plan, which follows a regional approach, will ease some restrictions while focusing on the health and safety of all Washingtonians. See current reopening guidance for businesses and workers.

The plan outlines four metrics that will be used to determine phases for each region. The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) will evaluate these metrics weekly and announce any changes to current phase status every Friday. DOH plans to launch a new dashboard displaying these metrics by region.

The proclamation is effective immediately, and extends through the COVID-19 state of emergency. The state will follow a regional recovery approach with every region beginning in Phase 1.

Kitsap County is part of the Northwest region, which includes Cllallam, Jefferson, Mason, and Kitsap counties. Kitsap will move between phases with the three other counties, based on metrics tracked across the Northwest Region. Learn more about the Healthy Washington plan from Kitsap Public Health.

Survey asks how the pandemic impacts food security

The University of Washington and Washington State University partnered to create the Washington Food Security Survey, an online public survey to monitor impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on food security and assistance, and economic well-being and recovery.

Those residing in Washington 18 years and older are asked to complete the survey to provide vital information about access to food and assistance, employment conditions, financial needs and quality of diet. Take the survey here.

Information collected will help state and community partners identify needs and support resource allocation for people in Washington.

The survey is voluntary and should take about 15 minutes to complete. Grocery gift cards will be given away to the first 50 respondents who take the survey and provide an email address – but personal contact information is not required. For more information, email
