King County Approved For Modified Phase 1 COVID Recovery

June 5, 2020 – On Wednesday, King County submitted a plan to the WA Department of Health to enter a modified Phase 1 of the Governor’s Safe Start COVID recovery plan. Today, June 5, the plan was approved, allowing many new activities to take place.

The new phase allows for limited openings of retail businesses, including allowing up to 25% of indoor seating capacity at restaurants, and 50% of outdoor dining (both with tables at 6-foot spacing). It also allows outdoor gatherings with up to 5 people outside your household.

Public Health - Seattle & King County emphasizes that it will still be important to maintain the safety principles that led to the success against the outbreak, such as: continuing physical distancing, minimizing contact with others outside the home, frequent hand washing or sanitizer, and use of cloth face coverings in public.
