Editor’s Note: As of April 12, this list is no longer being updated. Please see our most recent list here.

As the pandemic continues, Gov. Jay Inslee announced a plan on Jan. 5 called “Healthy Washington — Roadmap to Recovery.” The plan originally only had two phases, but a third was announced on March 11. All counties will be in Phase 3 starting March 22. The plan will also now focus on counties rather than regions. The governors office will release a full list of changes next week.

In Phase 3, spectators will be allowed to attend outdoor venues with permanent seating with capacity capped at 25%*. Additionally, up to 400 people maximum can attend outdoor activities and events in indoor facilities, so long as 400 people does not exceed 50% capacity for the location and physical distancing and masking protocols are enforced. Large venue events are capped at 25% occupancy or up to 9,000 people, whichever is less and must follow spectator guidelines.

Furthermore, Phase 3 will allow up to 50% occupancy or 400 people maximum, whichever is lower for all indoor spaces. This applies to all industries and indoor activities currently allowed including restaurants, gyms and fitness centers and movie theaters.

Counties will be evaluated every three weeks and will have different sets of criteria depending on their size. Counties can go back to a previous phase if they do not meet the criteria. All counties will move down a phase if the statewide ICU capacity reaches greater than 90%. For a breakdown of these requirements, see the Governor’s website.

Read on for a list of what activities you can and can’t do in Phases 1-3 and a list of counties. For the official guidelines and more information, visit the governor’s website or the state’s coronavirus website.
