The State will fully reopen on June 30, which could happen earlier if 70% or more of Washingtonians over the age of 16 get their first vaccine dose.

Yakima County remains in Phase 3 of the state’s Healthy Washington Roadmap to Recovery plan. Some activities will be allowed with fewer restrictions and increased capacity for groups of fully vaccinated people. Visit the Governor’s Healthy Washington site for the latest guidance.

Take these actions to help control the pandemic

  • Get vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people can now do more things safely without a mask. 
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, continue wearing a mask – most important is a snug fit!
  • Traveling soon? Check out the latest travel guidance!
  • Get tested and stay home if you have COVID-19 symptoms. 
  • Keep it small and outdoors. Avoid crowded, indoor spaces with poor air circulation. 

The Yakima Together site offers resources in English and Spanish on how you can help share information with your friends and family to reduce the spread of COVID‑19 and get vaccinated. 

Share the resources available to encourage others to follow the simple life-saving precautions.
