Inslee issues updated guidance for outdoor recreation in Phases 1 and 2

May 26, 2020

Story 

Gov. Jay Inslee today issued guidance further clarifying outdoor recreation requirements in Phase 1 and 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. Twenty-one counties have received the variance.
