COVID-19 resources for community and faith-based organizations

For community and faith-based organizations

This page offers resources and tools for organizations, faith and cultural leaders to engage with the communities they serve, including people who are unsheltered, communities with limited English proficiency, people who are undocumented, LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities, as well as frontline workers.

Current COVID-19 guidance for nonprofit, community-based organizations, and religious and faith-based organizations

Nonprofits and community-based organizations (CBOs), religious and faith-based organizations (FBOs), and other organizations may operate at full capacity and regular hours, with no physical distancing requirements. All organizations are required to follow King County and state mask guidance.

CBOs and FBOs can limit spread of COVID-19 and protect staff, volunteers, clients, and community, with proper indoor air ventilation, vaccination efforts, and mask guidelines. Organizations may choose to implement their own mask requirements. Please respect people’s choices to continue to wear a mask.
