Feb.12, 2021 Update – Spokane County Moving to Phase 2
On Feb. 11, 2021, Gov. Inslee announced that the East Region, which includes Spokane County, would be moving to Phase 2 of the Healthy Washington—Roadmap to Recovery plan on Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021. Phase 2 allows for increased indoor activities including dining, weddings and funerals, and fitness activities. See the Phase 2 Activities tab and the Our Region tab for more information.
The East Region is moving to Phase 2 according to criteria that require the region meet three of four metrics related to case rates, positivity rates and hospital capacity. (See the Metrics tab for more information.) You can track our region’s progress on the Roadmap to Recovery Dashboard.
As we continue to progress through phases, it’s important to continue following COVID-19 safety guidelines—wear a mask, wash your hands and maintain physical distancing. Taking these measures today will help our communities and businesses be ready to progress to the next phase when the time comes. If we do not continue to meet the criteria in the Roadmap to Recovery plan, the state can move our region back to Phase 1.
