Nothing from Governor Jay Inslee's office last week on whether capacity at local churches can be increased in Yakima County.
Yakima County officials held a meeting with Governor Jay Inslee last Monday hoping he'll give the ok to allow more capacity in local churches.
Currently churches in Yakima County under the modified Phase 1 of the state's reopening plan are limited to 25% or 50 people. Many churches in Yakima have much larger congregations. Churches are already operating with COVID-19 restrictions. County officials are hoping to hear something from the governor's office this week.
