The 2nd quarter was one of the more remarkable periods for the region with the dual impact of Covid-19 and the Black Lives Matter protests. By the end of the quarter, King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish Counties are in Phase 2 re-openings. Thurston County is in Phase 3. Kitsap County had applied for Phase 3 but this is on hold. Businesses that were classified as non-essential and therefore closed in Phase 1 are starting to open.
