COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) Outbreak Information

Updated March 3, 2021

The Cascade Loop is a 440-mile scenic byway that crosses through many regions of Washington State including areas with patients diagnosed with COVID-19. The safety of visitors and local residents is our highest priority. Please educate yourself with the latest information before finalizing your travel planning. 

Governor Jay Inslee issued a travel advisory for Washington in response to rising cases of COVID-19 across WA state and the nation, recommending a 14-day quarantine for interstate and international travel and asking residents to stay close to home. Inslee joined California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown in urging visitors entering their states or returning home from travel outside these states to self-quarantine to slow the spread of the virus. There is also a required 14-day quarantine for anyone returning to Washington state after visiting the United Kingdom, South Africa, and other countries where a new variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, 501Y.V, has been circulating.

Face Coverings

It is mandatory for everyone in Washington State to use a face covering in public areas and shared spaces, both indoors and outdoors, as directed by Gov. Jay Inslee and Secretary of Health John Wiesman. There are some exemptions to the DOH order, including people with certain disabilities or health conditions, people who are deaf or hard of hearing, and children under the age of 2. (Officials encourage use of a face covering by children ages 3-5 if possible. Children 5 and older must wear a face covering.) Additionally, face coverings may be removed in certain circumstances such as when sitting and eating or drinking at a restaurant, and while outdoors in public areas as long as a six-foot distance is kept from others.
