Washington State Mask Mandate

  • Public Health Seattle & King County: “King County will continue to evaluate the appropriate time to lift the local indoor mask order by considering number and severity of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, deaths, as well as the ability for hospitals and the healthcare system to manage patient loads. If cases and hospitalizations continue to fall and our hospitals recover and stabilize, as we all hope they will, it is reasonable that we will be at a place to lift the local indoor mask mandate, but we are not there yet. We will keep watching the numbers closely and will reassess in the coming weeks. Until then, we need to continue to use multiple layers of protection, including wearing high-quality, well-fitting masks while COVID-19 continues to spread at high levels.”

  • WA Dept. of Health : "State indoor mask requirements are changing on March 21, however, local jurisdictions can enact their own requirements."
