release new guidance for employers
Today Governor Inslee and L&I released updated guidance for employers that align with the new CDC guidelines adopted by the Governor on May 13.
Here are some links and important details:
  • Updated COVID-19 Facial Covering Guidance for Employers and Businesses (Guidance from the Governor's Office)
  • Mask and Distancing Requirements Are Changing (L&I Requirements)
  • Fully vaccinated employees do not have to wear a mask or socially distance at work, unless their employer or local public health agency still requires it
  • Before ending mask and social distance requirements, employers must confirm workers are fully vaccinated — by having the worker either sign a document attesting to their status or provide proof of vaccination
  • Employers must be able to demonstrate they have verified vaccination status for workers who are not masked or physically distanced. Verifications methods may include: -
  • Creating a log of workers who have verified they’ve been vaccinated and the date of verification, -
  • Checking vaccination status each day as workers enter a jobsite, -
  • Marking a worker’s badge or credential to show that they are vaccinated, or –
  • Other methods demonstrating an employer has verified worker vaccination status may also meet the standard
  • When verifying an employee’s vaccine status, acceptable documentation includes a CDC vaccination card, a photo of the card, documentation from a health care provider, a signed attestation from the worker, or documentation from the state immunization information system.
The Governor also updated the Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery plan with a new proclamation after his announcement that all counties would be in Phase 3 effective May 18, and the state will be fully reopening on June 30.
In addition, a new 'Safe Workers' proclamation was issued that requires employers to provide flexible options for worker vaccination.
