Inslee updates guidance for religious and faith based organizations

(PRESS RELEASE/Washington Governors Office)

Gov. Jay Inslee today announced updated guidance for religious and faith based organizations as part of Washington’s Safe Start phased reopening plan.

The religious and faith-based guidance is updated to:

  • Clarify that physical distancing between non-household members must be 6 feet in all directions; and
  • Permit brief physical contact among up to five individuals, excluding religious leaders, if the brief contact is a critical component to the organization’s religious service, so long as masks are worn and hands are sanitized immediately before and after the contact.
