Masks Required Statewide in All Businesses to Slow COVID-19
Don't leave home without a mask Tuesday. That's because masks are a requirement to enter a business beginning this week throughout Washington State.
Governor Jay Inslee made that announcement on Thursday as a way to slow the spread of the virus statewide. The proclamation follows the mandate that requires people to wear masks in public spaces.
Governor Jay Inslee says businesses that don't comply could face fines or closure.
For counties currently in Phase 3 like nearby Kittitas County bar seating is no longer permitted.
The governor also ordered a two-week pause in the state for counties wanting to move to the next phase of the state's re-opening plan.
