Clinician Advisory: Vaccination and Masking Requirements

Clinician Advisory--COVID-19: 

Governor Requires Vaccination for Healthcare Personnel

Local Health Officer Issues Directive for Masking in Public Indoor Spaces


Requested Action

  • Be aware of Governor Inslee’s proclamation 21-14 issued on August 9, 2021.  It requires credentialed healthcare providers and all other workers in health care settings to be fully vaccinated by October 18, 2021 (implying completion of a vaccine series by October 4).  Note that the proclamation does not afford philosophical exemptions; it does afford accommodations for disability and sincerely held religious beliefs. See the proclamation for details and address your healthcare employer if you have questions.
