Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee announced the next step forward for the state in the form of a new “Mask Up – Open Up” campaign during a news conference today.
Inslee said in the next couple of days, he will be signing a proclamation that says businesses will not be able to legally serve customers goods or services unless the patrons are wearing a face covering.
The proclamation will go into effect July 7.
He said the measure will be issued because of the “extremely troubling spike in the number of cases that we are experiencing across the state of Washington.”
