King County is in Phase 1 of the state's Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery plan.
Phase 1 aligns with restrictions in place with a few key exceptions. Indoor fitness and outdoor entertainment, for example, are now permitted with restrictions.
Help stop the spread of COVID-19:
- Wear a mask around people you don't live with (even close friends and family).
- Stay home as much as possible.
- Follow the Governor's limitations on indoor gatherings.
- Avoid gathering with people you don't live with.
- Quarantine and get tested at the first sign of illness or if you've been around someone with COVID-19.
