Governor Inslee announces Puget Sound & West regions moving to Phase 2 on Monday, Feb. 1

Puget Sound and West regions will be moving to Phase 2 effective Monday, Feb. 1 per his updated Roadmap to Recovery

This includes the following counties: Puget Sound (Snohomish, King & Pierce) and West (Thurston, Lewis, Pacific & Grays Harbor). This change will allow for restaurants in these counties to reopen indoor dining at 25% capacity through 11 p.m. Indoor fitness centers and live entertainment venues— including museums, bowling alleys and concert halls — can also reopen to 25% capacity. Bars that don’t serve food, however, must remain closed.

In-store retail remains at 25% capacity for both Phases 1 & 2 with no clear steps announced for increased capacity.

Only three of the four metrics below must be met now in order to move forward from Phase 1 to Phase 2 for the other regions:

· Decreasing trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 cases per 100K population

· Decreasing trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100K population

· Average 7-day percent occupancy of ICU staffed beds less than 90%; and,

· 7-day percent positivity of COVID-19 tests less than 10%

The Department of Health (DOH) will now evaluate and update progress every two weeks instead of every week on the online dashboard.
