Gov. Inslee expected to announce state employee vaccine mandate Monday
OLYMPIA, Wash. — Governor Inslee is expected to announce a vaccine mandate for state employees Monday.
This comes as COVID-19 infections, fueled mostly by the Delta variant, are surging across the U.S. and even in Washington, where over 70% of people are vaccinated.
Several hospitals and healthcare providers have also mandated their workers be vaccinated, and Inslee said he was considering a similar mandate in his last press conference. Inslee also recommended people wear masks indoors in high-transmission areas.
