[VIDEO] After a little over a week in Phase 2 of the Governor’s “Reopening Washington Plan,” Mason County officials are looking to apply to move into Phase 3. Dave Windom, Director of Mason County Community Services, briefed the Mason County Commission on the Phase 3 application Monday.
The earliest the County could apply is June 13th but only if guidelines are released prior to the County submitting the application. Approval would take several days and the plan would be to allow the move a week after approval from the State. As with the previous two applications, the Mason County Board of Health, Mason County Health Officer Dr. Daniel Stein, officials with Mason Health and the Mason County Commission would need to approve the application to move to Phase 3.
Windom plans to work on the now six-page application in the next week and brief the County Commissioners again next Monday.
Phase 3 includes allowing gatherings of no more than 50 people, 50 percent capacity at recreational facilities (gyms, public pools, etc.) and movie theaters, and 75 percent capacity at restaurants. Libraries and museums would be allowed to reopen.
