Gatherings & Events
Overview Resources

While COVID-19 has touched nearly every aspect of life, no single area has been more affected than our ability to gather with others, be it at commercially managed event venues, or within the confines of our community groups, places of worship or at home. The resources on this page provide guidance on how to gather safely with others, with links to information about what is currently allowed according to the Washington Ready plan.
