3. Mask On, Mask Off

King County health officials and County Executive Dow Constantine have issued a health directive urging people to use face coverings in indoor public spaces and in areas where social distancing is difficult. 
Although it has not yet been mandated, health officials strongly urge people to wear a face-covering in places like grocery stores, pharmacies and other places to slow the spread of coronavirus. As state restrictions begin to soften, central Puget Sound businesses and residents may see county health officials take a central role in local regulations.

4. Restaurants Planning for Phase Two Openings

While more populous counties remain in Phase One of Governor Inslee's 4 Phase "Back to Work" plan, the Governor recently released guidelines for Phase 2 dine-in restaurant operations.

Three more counties are entering Phase 2 of Gov. Jay Inslee's Safe Start plan to reopen the state as the coronavirus pandemic wanes.

Wahkiakum, Skamania and Stevens counties were approved to enter Phase 2 Monday, which will loosen several key restrictions to local businesses. Now that they've been approved the state says the counties will be given individual advice on how to best transition into Phase 2. Once they've proven they're following that guidance, Phase 2 can officially begin.
