Washington Update

November 23, 2020

The last few weeks have seen seismic shifts in the COVID-19 workplace safety landscape. Below is a state-by-state summary of some of the most important changes (and continued requirements):

On November 15, 2020, Washington Governor Inslee issued Proclamation 20-25.8, which, among other things, requires “employers to comply with all conditions for operation required by the state Department of Labor & Industries, including interpretive guidance, regulations and rules such as WAC 296-800-14035, and Department of Labor & Industries- administered statutes.”

The Prolamation also mandates capacity limits and other workplace safety measures for several industries, including professional services and in-store retail.

The Governor also issued updated reopening guidance for several industries consistent with the Proclamation.

The Proclamation took effect on November 17, 2020.
