Inslee issues proclamation establishing higher education safety guidelines

By Office of Governor Jay Inslee | Press Release

Gov. Jay Inslee issued a proclamation today establishing safety guidelines for higher education institutions and living facilities.  

Higher Education (20-12.2): 

This proclamation builds on health guidance previously issued for institutions of higher education by adding additional safety measures to address significant increases in COVID-19 infections that have occurred particularly in congregate living areas, like Greek houses, and large social gatherings of students.

Examples of changes include:

  • Limitations on the number of residents who may share a sleeping area;
  • Limitations on the number of people in common areas;
  • Requirements for all people in common areas to wear a mask and remain socially distanced.

In addition, institutions of higher education must provide isolation and quarantine facilities to fraternity, sorority or other group houses, students who live in shared housing in close proximity to campus, students living in dorms, and personnel if they don’t have a place to go.
