Inslee announces extension of eviction moratorium, expansion of vaccine eligibility, long-term care visitations may resume

Gov. Jay Inslee today announced the statewide eviction moratorium will be extended through June 30.* Upcoming vaccine eligibility was also expanded to include restaurant workers and Washingtonians 60 and older. In addition, he announced that effective immediately, visitations at long-term care facilities and nursing homes may resume.

The eligibility expansion will open up appointments on March 31st for:

  • Anyone with two or more comorbidities
  • Anyone between the ages of 60 and 64
  • Anyone living in congregate settings (correctional facilities, group homes for those with disabilities, those experiencing homelessness, etc.)
  • Additional workers in congregate settings (restaurants, manufacturing, construction)

In addition, the state Department of Health today launched a new web tool to help people find open vaccination appointments near them.

The governor signed two proclamations yesterday; one relating to utility shutoffs and the other focusing on debt garnishment. Under the new proclamations, the utility shutoff moratorium is extended through July 31, and debt garnishment on federal pandemic payments is still prohibited.

See more details on all of these announcements on the governor's Medium page.

* The eviction moratorium will be extended to June 30, not June 20 as a previous release from the governor's office stated.
