Spectator event guidance updated

Gov. Jay Inslee on May 26 approved an update to the guidance documents for spectator events to help bring these events in line with other occupancy restrictions in Phase 3 of the Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery plan. The changes are effective immediately. 

Under the new spectator events guidance: 

  • The occupancy percentage for outdoor venues is increased from 25% to 50%, the cap of 9,000 spectators will remain in place.
  • The requirement for a separate entrance/exit for vaccinated spectators is removed.

See the governor's news release for more details. See all reopening guidance on the governor's website.


CDC recommendations for domestic travel

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages you to delay travel until you are fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow CDC’s recommendations for unvaccinated people.

People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine or a vaccine authorized for emergency use by the World Health Organization can travel safely within the United States.

CDC will update these recommendations as more people are vaccinated, as rates of COVID-19 change, and as additional scientific evidence becomes available. This guidance applies to travel within the United States and U.S. territories.

Traveling internationally? Check CDC’s COVID-19 Travel Recommendations by Destination before planning your trip.
