Story 

Gov. Jay Inslee today issued guidance for resuming real estate and fitness operations in Phase 2.

Through the Washington "Safe Start" plan, more businesses and activities will re-open in phases, with adequate safety and health standards in place. Each phase will be at least three weeks.

Additionally, counties with less than 10 new cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 residents over a 14-day span can apply for a variance to move to Phase 2 of “Safe Start” before other parts of the state. County variance applications will be approved or denied by the secretary of the Department of Health. Ten counties have received the variance. 

For counties granted variance to move to Phase 2, real estate operations may resume, effective May 19.
