Proclamation 20-24.2 (Still in Effect as of May 19, 2021)

On Nov. 25, 2020, Governor Inslee released updates to Proclamation 20-24.2 “Reducing Restrictions on, and Safe Expansion of, Non-Urgent Medical and Dental Procedures.” This revised Proclamation, which has not been revised since May, includes references to updated guidelines and resources that have changed over the last several months.

Proclamation 20-24.2 does not enact any additional restriction or limitation on the delivery of dental care or health care more broadly. Instead, the revised Proclamation updates the requirements health care providers must follow to provide ongoing care based upon new data and resources. In addition, the Governor’s Office is empowering health care providers to self-regulate capacity for care based upon parameters outlined in the proclamation.
