The virus hasn’t let up and we can’t either
On June 19, King County was approved for Phase 2 of the Governor’s Safe Start plan. Phase 2 allows for twice the capacity in retail, restaurants, and other businesses previously allowed in King County’s modified Phase 1 and goes into effect immediately.
There are several new things that we can do in Phase 2.
- We can now enjoy eating out a favorite restaurant—and it will be roomy because capacity is limited to 50%.
- You can shop more easily to get what you need at a clothing store.
- You can gather with up to five favorites once a week. For example, you can invite five or fewer friends over to your home once a week. (That number six on your list should be on your B team and will have to come over the following week). In reality, there isn’t one perfect magic number, but if we all follow these general practices, we will be in a better spot to slow the spread of disease.
