On May 1, Governor Inslee outlined his phased “Safe Start” approach for resuming recreational, social, and business activities. To support the business community in their reopening efforts, a Whatcom County COVID Employer Support Task Force was established. 

The Task Force works within the framework of Washington’s Safe Start approach for reopening businesses and develops a set of best practices and guidelines for ensuring businesses have measures in place to protect their employees, customers, and clients from the risk of infection with COVID-19. We’re all in this together and we’re here to support you by providing you with the most up-to-date guidance and resources to help in your planning efforts.
