‘Safe Start’ return to normal

Washington is in the first of four phases to resume normal activities and commerce.

• Currently, Phase 1 involves resumption of some construction and outdoor activities such as fishing, hunting, golf and certain park access, and limited curbside retail commerce, among other things.

• Some rural counties (other than Snohomish) have applied for exemptions and are in Phase 2, which allows partial reopening of dine-in restaurants and taverns, limited in-store retail sales, expansion of outdoor activities and other steps, all of which come with conditions.

Phase 3 will allow group activities with 50 or fewer people, professional sports without spectators, non-essential travel and the reopening of museums and other public places — again, all of which come with conditions.

Phase 4 will reopen everything but require social-distancing measures.

The phases will last no fewer than three weeks, and each could be extended if COVID-19 health metrics indicate a need to reinstate or continue limitations.
