Washington Governor Jay Inslee and Secretary of Health John Wiesman are implementing a statewide mandatory face covering order that will take effect Friday, June 26. After subsequent reports of cases increasing in counties across the state, the governor and Wiesman extended the face covering requirement today to include the entire state of Washington.
Gov. Inslee says, “As necessary economic activity increases and more people are out in their communities, it is imperative that we adopt further measures to protect all of us. Until a vaccine or cure is developed, this is going to be one of our best defenses.”
Starting Friday, every Washingtonian must wear a facial covering when in a public space, as mandated by the public health order signed by Wiesman. This includes both indoor and outdoor public spaces.
