Reopening Your Business

  • Healthy Washington Reopening Plan

    What is Healthy Washington?

    Healthy Washington is the phased reopening plan for Washington state. The plan took effect on January 11, 2021. On March 11, 2021, Gov. Jay Inslee announced that the plan will transition from a regional approach to a county-by-county evaluation process.

    How do I know which phase I am in?

    King County entered Phase 3 on March 22, 2021.

    When can a county move to another phase?

    Certain metrics and thresholds help determine if it is safe for a county to enter into a new phase of reopening. Counties will be individually evaluated every three weeks. The first evaluation is scheduled for April 12.
