Gov. Inslee Announces Statewide Mask Mandate

Posted by Erica Dial

Yesterday afternoon Gov. Inslee announced that starting Friday, June 26th everyone will be required to wear a mask when outside their home and in public. The governor said there are exemptions to the facial covering rule, including:

People who can't wear masks because of existing medical conditions.
Children 5 years old and younger.
People who are deaf or need to have their mouth uncovered in order to communicate.
When it is onerous to do so, including customers who are eating out at a restaurant.

Below are a few different articles explaining the new rule:
