Gov. Jay Inslee today amended Proclamation 20-25, Washington Ready (formerly known as “Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery”) to update the statewide guidance and requirements for moving forward. The order reflects the general rules for moving forward after June 30, 2021, including the ongoing face covering requirement. The order remains in effect until amended or rescinded or until the state of emergency is ended.

As part of moving forward, the governor also rescinded Proclamation 20-57, which prohibited agricultural employers from operating unless they comply with certain worker guidelines. The rescission is effective immediately and is meant to align agricultural workplaces with the other industries covered under Proclamation 20-25, et seq. Termination of this emergency order does not impact any agency rule concerning temporary worker housing, or any other COVID-19 health and safety requirement directed by the governor, the Department of Labor & Industries, or the Department of Health.
