The State of Washington has removed most COVID-19 restrictions, but COVID-19 is still present in our communities. If you're not vaccinated, masks are still required in most settings. For more information about what's required, please see our Safe Reopening FAQ and blog. We are working to update our webpages to reflect these changes.

By now, most of us know the symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, and body aches. And we understand the importance of wearing a snug-fitting mask, keeping 6 feet apart, and limiting indoor gatherings.

The resources on this page are here to support you in maintaining habits that will keep all of us safe. Thank you.
