Clark County Remains in Phase 3
Today, Governor Inslee announced a two-week pause on movement in the Healthy Washington: Roadmap to Recovery reopening plan. Under the pause, every county will remain in its current phase. At the end of two weeks, each county will be re-evaluated. Our case numbers remain high, we must all continue to do our part to reduce transmission so we can reopen faster together!
