Washington is using a phased approach to reopen businesses in Washington’s Safe Start Recovery Plan. As of May 22, Spokane County is approved to be in Phase 2. In each phase, new industries are allowed to open under strict guidance from the state, to protect employees and the public from the spread of COVID-19. The following table summarizes each phase and what is allowed to reopen.

Please note, fitness and training facilities have been added to Phase 2, in a limited capacity, and are not reflected in the table graphic. See Safe Start Recovery Plan linked above for requirements.

Before approved businesses are allowed to reopen, they must ensure that they meet all the required guidelines for reopening. A comprehensive list of guidelines for various industries can be found on Governor Inslee’s COVID-19 Reopening Guidance for Businesses and Workers page. In addition:
