Update June 16, 2021:

King County mask Directive lifts on June 29. 70% of residents age 16 and older have completed their vaccine series. That means that on June 29, 70% of residents 16 and older will be protected from COVID-19 through vaccination and the King County mask directive will end. (It takes about two weeks after completing the vaccine series to be considered fully protected.) Once the King County mask directive ends, the Washington state mask guidance will be in effect in King County.

Latest news

Take these actions to help control the pandemic.

Get vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people can now do more things safely.

Whether you are fully vaccinated or not, continue wearing a mask in indoor public spaces – most important is a snug fit!

Traveling soon? Check out the latest travel guidance!

Get tested if you’ve traveled, attended a social gathering, or been in a crowded, indoor setting.

Keep it small and outdoors. Avoid crowded, indoor spaces with poor air circulation. Improving indoor air is key.

The State will fully reopen on June 30, which could happen earlier if 70% or more of Washingtonians over the age of 16 get their first vaccine dose.

King County remains in Phase 3 of the state’s Healthy Washington Roadmap to Recovery plan. Some activities will be allowed with fewer restrictions and increased capacity for groups of fully vaccinated people. Visit the Governor’s Healthy Washington site for the latest guidance.
