Presidents and chancellors,

Today the governor announced new statewide restrictions effective through December 14, to mitigate rapidly increasing COVID infection rates.  More information can be found at this link:  https://www.governor.wa.gov/sites/default/files/proclamations/COVID%2019%20November%20Statewide%20Restrictions.pdf

At this time we think higher education instruction is exempt from these new restrictions and can continue to follow the higher education reopening requirements that you have been following since June.  We are working to confirm this.

There may be requirements for some activities listed in the new guidance that will apply to similar activities at the colleges.  We are confirming those assumptions and will be updating and sending that clarification to colleges in a revised FAQ in the next few days.

Please don't hesitate to contact Carli Schiffner or Laura McDowell if you have questions.
