Inslee increases capacity for publicly owned or operated, and non-profit cooling centers

Gov. Jay Inslee today removed COVID-related capacity limits at publicly owned or operated, and non-profit cooling centers.

The governor’s emergency proclamations 20-05 and 20-25.13, “Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery,” remain in effect and have capacity limitations to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This order allows capacity limitations to be adjusted or removed in order to provide the ability to serve more people at publicly owned or operated, and non-profit cooling centers.

All other aspects of the governor’s COVID restrictions remain in effect until Wednesday, June 30 or whenever 70 percent of the population initiates vaccination, whichever comes first.


Phase 1 Fire Danger Burn Ban in effect

Due to rising fire danger, the Kitsap County Fire Marshal has imposed a Phase 1 Fire Danger Burn Ban on most outdoor burning starting at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, June 26.

Under the Phase I Burn Ban, all outdoor burning permits are suspended until further notice and all burning is prohibited except for recreational or cooking fires in approved devices and locations. Read the full notice here.


Inslee announces eviction moratorium “bridge”

Gov. Jay Inslee yesterday announced a “bridge” proclamation between the eviction moratorium and the housing stability programs put in place by the Legislature. The bridge is effective July 1 through September 30.

More than $650 million of federal relief dollars allocated to assist renters is predicted to be available beginning in July. This is in addition to the $500 million dollars previously released by the Department of Commerce to local governments for rental assistance and will help more than 80,000 landlords and renters.

Under the new order, new provisions will support renters and landlords until resources and programs become available. Hotels and motels, Airbnbs, long-term care facilities and other non-traditional housing are exempt from the order.

The full proclamation will be available in the coming days. See the governor's news release for more details.
