Update 2/12: On February 11, Governor Inslee announced King County and the Puget Sound Region will remain in Phase 2 of the state's Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery plan. The region is currently meeting all of the state's four metrics.

A table with the Puget Sound Region's Roadmap to Recovery metrics, as well as a dashboard with King County-only indicators is available.

Phase 2 allows for indoor activities, including dining, fitness, museums and more at 25 percent capacity. As we face new more contagious COVID-19 variants, we must stay as vigilant as ever to keep businesses open and COVID activity trending down. In addition to wearing well-fitted masks and social distancing, Public Health—Seattle & King County encourages businesses and facilities operating indoors to prioritize ventilation and air flow, plus outdoor, takeout and curbside offerings. For activities and gatherings allowed in Phase 2 that require advanced planning, such as wedding and funeral receptions for example, keep in mind that the state evaluates our region’s status every two weeks and can move us back to Phase 1, if we aren’t meeting their criteria.

Learn what workplaces, community and faith-based organizations, schools and childcare, and residents in King County need to know, plus important COVID-19 resources for you or your business.
