COVID-19

From Executive Sidhu

With the re-opening of Washington State June 30, Governor Inslee has removed all restrictions on mask wearing for fully vaccinated individuals, all social distancing and limits on capacities, except for certain exceptions. Therefore, we will not be requiring the public who enter our buildings to wear a mask if they are fully vaccinated.  We will expect that those members of the public who are not vaccinated will wear a mask, but we will not be requiring proof of vaccination.   

Individual department leadership will determine the rules that apply within their teams also within the State guidance which still requires that all unvaccinated staff must wear a mask and the department must have available proof for all those who are vaccinated in order for them not to wear masks.
