Gov. Inslee will rescind remaining COVID-19 emergency orders effective Oct. 31

The governor made the announcement Thursday, effectively ending pandemic restrictions in the state

From The Olympian:

After more than two years of emergency proclamations related to COVID-19 in Washington state, Gov. Jay Inslee announced Thursday that all remaining orders will be rescinded on Oct. 31. “We don’t need to spend a lot of time reflecting on the journey, except to know we do have some more work to do against COVID, the effort against COVID will continue, but the necessity of an emergency order in order to accomplish those mission statements is no longer necessary,” Inslee told a room of reporters at the Capitol building in Olympia. Only 10 emergency orders are currently still in effect, after the rescission of 12 other orders at the end of July.


The most significant of the remaining orders in place is proclamation 21-14 on vaccines, which requires state workers, staff at educational facilities, and health care employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
