Governor J. Inslee announced today that additional counties may apply for Phase 2 status as part of his recovery plan under the Stay Home -Stay Healthy order.


Governor J. Inslee announced today that additional counties may apply for Phase 2 status as part of his recovery plan under the Stay Home -Stay Healthy order. There currently are 10 counties (Asotin, Columbia, Ferry, Garfield, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Skamania, Stevens, Wahkiakum and Whitman) in the state which already have been approved for Phase 2 and this announcement allows the following additional counties to seek approval: Spokane, Adam, Mason, Thurston, Lewis, Clark, Clallam, Kitsap, Island and San Juan. Track your county's application status here

Approved Phase 2 counties will be permitted to conduct limited commercial real estate activities. Also, real estate offices in Phase 2 counties may re-open to the public pursuant to specific guidelines that will be issued very soon.

We expect that Phase 2 also will include some changes to the way real estate activities may be conducted outside of real estate offices, e.g., at showings. We will notify you as to the details and opening protocol as soon as they are available.

Phase 2 county applications will be approved based on various data points, including but not limited to the number of new Covid-19 infections. To date, this review and decision process is completed within a week, which means that many counties will be permitted to engage in Phase 2 activities in the very near future. 

Please watch your inbox for details on how to prepare your practice and your office for the gradual reopening.
