Inslee announced plans to implement more restrictions on certain businesses, wedding ceremonies, funerals and fitness centers in Washington to continue to limit the spread of COVID-19.
These new limitations do not apply to retail businesses at this time.
Effective July 30, indoor dining at restaurants will now be limited to members of the same household only. For counties in Phase 3, there may only be five people at a table and total occupancy cannot exceed 50%. Fitness centers will also be forced to have limited capacity. For counties in Phase 2, fitness centers will be limited to five people. In Phase 3, fitness centers will be limited to 25% occupancy. Indoor family entertainment facilities, like mini-golf areas and the like are prohibited as well.
Effective August 6, there will also be changes for wedding ceremonies and funeral services. Receptions are no longer allowed. Ceremonies are permitted with 20% occupancy or 30 people, whichever is less and people must maintain six feet of physical distance.
