*Large indoor events are defined as any event with more than 10,000 simultaneous participants located in an indoors enclosed space. Large indoor events are restricted to 75% capacity, unless vaccination verification is occurring. If vaccination verification is occurring prior to entry, and the venue requires all attendees be vaccinated, there are no capacity restrictions. However, we will not allow vaccinated sections as a way to go above 75% capacity unless all attendees are vaccinated. No physical distancing requirements apply and attendees must follow the current masking requirements. We will reevaluate the restrictions on large indoor events on July 31, 2021.
SUBJECT TO CHANGE, this is based on guidance from Gov Inslee, State Dept of Health. Local officials do NOT have the authority to make changes without state approval.
