Staying home is still safest

We must prevent runaway spread of COVID-19 in Washington state. Our individual actions make a difference. Fewer, shorter and safer interactions are crucial.

Staying home is still safest. If you do go out, keep it quick, keep your distance and wear a face covering. Recreate and do business locally to avoid spreading the virus across county lines. Limit the number of people outside your household that you gather with every week. If you feel symptoms of COVID-19, get tested.

Looking for daily COVID-19 statistics?

Daily statistics are provided by the Department of Health (DOH) and on the state’s risk assessment dashboard.

Starting Friday, June 26, face coverings (masks) will be required statewide. Wearing face coverings will reduce the rate of #COVID19 statewide — but we all must still remain 6-feet apart if possible, wash hands and stay home whenever possible.

There are exemptions, including people with certain disabilities or health conditions, people who are deaf or hard of hearing and children under the age of 5 (though it’s encouraged to have children ages 3-5 wear a covering if possible). There are also situations when you can remove your face covering, such as when seated at a restaurant or when recreating alone.

You do not need to wear a cloth face covering in your home when you are only with people in your household, or when you are alone in your car. You do not need to wear one when you are outdoors and people are far apart.
