Inslee announces universal masking, vaccine requirements for certain sectors
Inslee announces universal masking, vaccine requirements for certain sectors

Gov. Jay Inslee last Wednesday announced a vaccination requirement for employees working in K-12, most childcare and early learning, and higher education, as well as an expansion of the statewide mask mandate to all individuals, regardless of vaccination status. The governor was joined for the announcement by Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal and Secretary of Health Dr. Umair A. Shah.

K-12 educators, school staff, coaches, bus drivers, school volunteers and others working in school facilities will have until October 18 to be fully vaccinated as a condition of employment. The requirement includes public, private and charter schools, and comes as schools across the state prepare to return for the 2021-2022 school year amid rapidly increasing case and hospitalization numbers. This does not impact students, regardless of age.

"It has been a long pandemic, and our students and teachers have borne their own unique burdens throughout," Inslee said. "This virus is increasingly impacting young people, and those under the age of 12 still can't get the vaccine for themselves. We won't gamble with the health of our children, our educators and school staff, nor the health of the communities they serve."

Inslee also announced a vaccine requirement for employees in Washington's higher education institutions, as well as for most childcare and early learning providers who serve children from multiple households. These individuals also have until October 18 to be fully vaccinated.

Citizens needed to attend PUD meeting

On Tuesday, August 17 at 10:00 a.m., mayors from Napavine, Winlock and PeEll along with a representative from the City of Mossyrock discussed their concern for rate increases and asked the PUD to keep rates the same.

Michael Kelly, the new PUD commissioner who was elected last year, has had many concerns about the cost of rates to the citizens in Lewis County. He is also concerned with what expenditures the PUD is doing including replacing equipment without the knowledge of the equipments' remaining life span. Kelly was unable to get documents from PUD General Manager Chris Roden, which caused Kelly to have a public records request submitted on his behalf.
