Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery Update
May 5, 2021
Skagit County Remains in Phase 3
- The State is under a two-week pause on movement in the Healthy Washington: Roadmap to Recovery reopening plan. For the past several weeks, epidemiologists have been following the state’s fourth COVID-19 wave, which now appears to be leveling out.
- We are seeing increasing vaccination rates, shortening hospital stays and lessening the severity of the illness. The state’s early vaccine prioritization has also been tied to improved data and decreasing mortality rates in the state’s most vulnerable populations.
- Please review the COVID-19 Reopening Guidance for Businesses and Workers.
- The Roadmap to Recovery Metrics will determine Skagit County's phase.
- Skagit County is paused in Phase 3 of Roadmap to Recovery until May 18, 2021.
- You can find the page where all industry reopening guidance is posted here.
Vaccines are now available to all Washingtonians 16 and up. To find an appointment, visit VaccineLocator.doh.wa.gov.
