Inslee Announces Opening


May 13, 2021

Gov. Jay Inslee announces a path to fully reopen our state by June 30. We could reopen sooner if 70% of Washingtonians age 16 and older initiate vaccination.  The state also adopts the new masking guidance released by CDC, meaning fully vaccinated individuals can go without a mask in many situations.
