Governor Jay Inslee held several press conferences last week and issued guidance for drive-in religious services, vehicle and vessel sales in his Safe Start recovery plan.
One of the first industries to re-open was vehicle and vessel sales. Some churches in north Pacific County did conduct drive-in services over the weekend.
Last Wednesday, Inslee released guidance allowing religious, spiritual and faith-based organizations the ability to conduct drive-in services.
"Faith is so important at all times, but especially during times of crisis and difficulty. This unique drive-in service option will allow people to come together," Inslee said. "Our goal has always been to keep Washingtonians safe and healthy, and this option allows them to do that while participating in religious, spiritual and faith-based activities."
"This guidance is the work of a strong collaborative process between my office and the industry," Inslee said. "Here is a great example of vehicle and vessels sales dealerships leading the way to ensure the opening of their businesses puts the health and safety needs of their employees and customers first."
