On March 23, 2020, Gov. Jay Inslee issued an Executive Order directing all state residents to remain at home, except for essential activities, such as grocery shopping, medical care, or working at a business deemed essential.
Agricultural and food production jobs are designated as an essential and critical infrastructure sector. You can review the full list of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers online. If you work in a job listed as “essential,” the Governor’s proclamation permits you to travel to your job or as part of your job. If you do not see your work area on the list, there is an online form you can fill out to get clarification or petition to be added to the list.
If you have concerns about traveling or the movement of your employees during this “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” period, contact your local emergency management office. Contacts are available on this list of State, County, City, Tribal Emergency Coordinators maintained by the Washington State Military Department.
