Inslee announces new SAFETY PLAN for reopening

Posted by Erica Dial

Governor Inslee announced a new safety plan for reopening the State of Washington. The HEALTHY WASHINGTON plan replaces the old SAFE START plan. The state will be divided up into 8 regions based on health system resources. In order to move to a new Phase (currently we are in a Phase 1), regions will have to show a 10% decrease in trends in case rates; a 10% decrease in COVID hospital admission rates; an ICU occupancy rate that's less than 90% and a test positivity rate of less than 10%. In Phase Two, restaurants can open indoor dining at 25% capacity, fitness centers can open at 25% capacity and other increases in capacity for events can increase.  You can read more about it here (Governor's COVID page - new info hasn't been posted just yet)
