|Beginning Monday, February 15th 2021 Clallam County will enter into Phase 2 of Governor Inslee’s Roadmap to Recovery!|
What does that mean?·
In Phase 2;
*Restaurants and indoor fitness centers can reopen indoor dining at 25%.
*Sports competitions may also resume in Phase 2 with limited spectators.
*Wedding and funeral ceremonies are able to increase their capacities from current limits as well.
Clallam County’s COVID-19 cases have been in the moderate range recently which means Clallam County has one of the lowest case rates in the state, along with Jefferson and San Juan Counties.
The Governor’s regionalized evaluation system, however, put Clallam and Jefferson Counties into a region with Kitsap and Mason Counties that have had dramatically higher case rates which prevented us from being able to open our restaurants and fitness centers.
To advance from Phase 1 to Phase 2, our region (Clallam, Jefferson, Kitsap and Mason) had to show a 10% decreasing trend in case rates; a 10% decrease in COVID hospital admission rates; an ICU occupancy rate that’s less than 90%; and a test positivity rate of less than 10%.The region collectively has now achieved that.
