Inslee adds vaccinated sections for Washington venues

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Gov. Inslee announced Monday that venues in Washington state are now allowed to have vaccinated sections to increase capacity.

The new rules, outlined in a release from the governor’s office says that vaccinated sections can increase the allowed total capacity to 50% or 22,000 people, whichever is smaller.

Outdoor unvaccinated spaces are still limited to 9,000 people, with groups still maintaining 6-feet distance from each other.

Suites can be filled to 100% if every guest shows proof of vaccination. Suite totals do not get added to the venue total.

For indoor facilities, vaccinated sections can be added too, increasing the total capacity to 50% or 2,000 people, whichever is smaller.

Similar to outdoor spaces, indoor groups must maintain the 6-foot distance.

Vaccinated sections in indoor spaces may be seated at full capacity, as long as all guests provide proof of vaccination
