Community and Faith-Based Organizations
King County is in Phase 2 of the state's Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery plan.
Phase 2 restrictions for religious and faith-based organizations plus resources for community and faith-based organizations can be found here. For activities and gatherings allowed in Phase 2 that require advanced planning, such as wedding and funeral receptions, 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.
Guidance for Faith-Based Organizations
With continuing reports of COVID-19 outbreaks at indoor gatherings, the Governor still strongly encourages religious leaders and communities to conduct services remotely. Alternatively, drive-in services are permitted.
Phase 2 still restricts indoor services to the lesser of 25% capacity or 200 individuals as long as 6 feet of distance is kept between people from different households.
What's new: Ceremonies and indoor receptions, wakes, or similar gatherings in conjunction with such ceremonies are permitted and must follow the appropriate venue requirements. If food or drinks are served, eating and drinking requirements apply.
For a comprehensive set of COVID-19 resources, visit King County’s COVID-19 Community and Faith-based Organizations site.
