As of June 8, a cloth facial covering is required for all employees. A few exceptions are allowed according to Governor Inslee’s “ Safe Start Washington: Phased Reopening County-by-County ” document:

  • Working alone in an office, vehicle, or at a job site
  • Employees with hearing issues or when communicating with others that need facial cues or mouth movements as a part of communication
  • Employees with a medical condition or disability that need accommodation with medical documentation from a healthcare provider
  • When the job has no in-person interaction
