Keep Fremont Open, Wear a Mask
Effective Friday, a statewide order requires individuals to wear a face covering in indoor public spaces such as stores, offices and restaurants. The order also requires face coverings outdoors when you can’t stay 6 feet apart from others. There are exemptions, including people with certain disabilities or health conditions, people who are deaf or hard of hearing, and children under the age of 2. Read the full order and list of exemptions here.
To make reopening as safe as possible, King County has created posters, materials and resources:
