COVID-19 Response

The City of Washougal continues to follow the guidance of county, state and federal health officials to prepare for and respond to COVID-19 in our community. We are in close contact with health officials and government partners to coordinate our response and operations.

To limit the potential for additional COVID-19 exposure to our city personnel, customers and community, all City facilities will be closed to the public until further notice. This measure to increase social distancing practices is being taken in response to ongoing guidance from health officials regarding the necessary actions to stop the spread of COVID-19. The City is still open for business during this closure. Click here to learn about how you can still access city services.

As a reminder from CRESA, please 311 to report non-compliant individuals. 

Statewide REopening Date of June 30

County ApproachOn May 13, 2021, Governor Inslee announced that the state is moving toward a statewide June 30 reopening date and that all counties in Washington will move to Phase 3 of the Healthy WA: Roadmap to Recovery reopening plan effective May 18 until June 30.

The full reopening could happen earlier than June 30 if 70% or more of Washingtonians over the age of 16 initiate vaccination. 

Inslee also announced that Washington will fully adopt masking guidance issued by the CDC. He stressed that this guidance is for fully vaccinated people — meaning people who are two weeks removed from their second shot of Pfizer or Moderna, or the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
