Island County is currently in a modified Phase 3 of the "Safe Start" Plan

At the end of July, Governor Inslee increased the restrictions on Phase 3 counties in the "Safe Start" phased approach to social gatherings of no more than 10 people, with additional restrictions to businesses, family entertainment centers, weddings and funerals. Current Guidance and safety criteria for reopening can be found on the "COVID-19 Reopening Guidance" webpage.

Avoid non-essential travel to reduce the risk of further COVID-19 spread.  If you must travel, research your destination before departure to assess COVID-19 exposure risk and plan for appropriate precautions. See the table below to review key metrics used to determine county readiness to move between phases.  This image has been pulled directly from the WA State Phase and Risk Assessment Dashboard and will be updated periodically.
