Skamania County Phase 2 Application Approved By State

Washington State Secretary of Health John Wiesman approved Skamania County’s application to move into Phase 2 of Governor Jay Inslee’s Safe Start plan.  Skamania County officials say they do not yet have all the requirements regarding Phase 2 openings and will pass that information on once they have it.  Businesses must wait to reopen until guidance has been released for their industry on how to keep workers and the public safe.  They must comply with all health and safety requirements outlined in that guidance to reopen.  Eight Washington counties have been approved to move into Phase 2.  Each county had to demonstrate they have adequate local hospital bed capacity as well as adequate PPE supplies to keep health care workers safe, plus plans for making testing available to everyone in the county with symptoms, staff for contact tracing, quarantine or isolation plans, and the ability to rapidly respond to an outbreak in congregate living settings.
