Inslee extends high-risk employee proclamation
(OLYMPIA)- Gov. Jay Inslee on Wednesday announced the extension of proclamation 20-46.1, first issued in April, which relates to protections for high-risk employees and workers' rights.
As a result of new CDC guidance regarding people at increased risk for severe illness, the extension will provide a clarifying guidance memo. The guidance memo confirms that employees who are 65 and older continue to be covered by the proclamation and clarifies processes for employers of individuals with certain medical conditions.
The proclamation will remain in effect through the duration of the state of emergency, or until otherwise rescinded or amended.
