Inslee announces statewide move to Phase 3 of recovery plan, return to spectator events and Tier 2 vaccine eligibility

Gov. Jay Inslee today announced that Healthy Washington: Roadmap to Recovery will be transitioning from a regional approach to a county-by-county evaluation process. The governor also announced a new third phase of the Roadmap and a return for in-person spectators for professional and high school sports.

Effective March 22, the entire state will enter Phase 3. Additionally, the governor announced that starting Wednesday, March 17, everyone in Tier 2 will be eligible for their COVID vaccine.

Under the updated plan, counties will be individually evaluated every three weeks. The evaluations will occur on Mondays with any possible changes taking effect Friday, with the first evaluation scheduled for April 12.

A full list of industry-level changes for the new phase will be released next week. See the governor's Medium page for more details.


Who is in Tier 2?

Gov. Inslee announced today that the next phase of COVID-19 vaccination — Phase 1b, Tier 2 — will begin on Wednesday, March 17. Everyone already eligible for vaccination, including those 65 and older, will still be eligible.

Tier 2 includes:

  • High-risk critical workers who work in certain congregate settings, including: workers in agriculture, food processing, grocery stores, public transit, firefighters and law enforcement, among others.
  • People 16 years or older who are pregnant or have a disability that puts them at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness.
