Inslee extends proclamations related to COVID-19

Story Body

Gov. Jay Inslee announced the extension of three proclamations today including visitation and remedial services, shared work, and temporary licensing for dental and pharmacy graduates.

A July 14 letter from the Legislature extends proclamations 20-33.7, 20-58 and 20-59 until August 1.

Visitation and Remedial Services - 20-33.8

This proclamation continues to suspend requirements that DCYF facilitate in-person visits for foster children with family and caseworkers, and continues to waive requirements that DCYF provide remedial services for children in DCYF custody.

Shared Work - 20-58.1

This proclamation waives/suspends the statute that requires shared work benefits to be paid by employers, thereby allowing federal CARES Act funding to be used to pay for the employer portion of shared work benefits.

Temporary Licensing – Dental and Pharmacy Graduates - 20-59.1

Due to the impact of COVID on the inability of recent dental, dental hygiene, and pharmacy graduates to meet statutory licensing requirements, this proclamation allows dental hygiene and pharmacy graduates to obtain a temporary license if certain conditions are met.
