The Governor of Washington State has issued a statewide order that requires all employees to wear a cloth facial covering.
This order goes into effect Monday, June 8, 2020.
What You Need to Know
- Employers must provide cloth facial coverings to employees, unless their exposure dictates a higher level of protection under the Department of Labor and Industries’ safety and health rules and guidance.
- Employees may choose to wear their own facial coverings at work, provided it meets the minimum requirements.
- TERRA has facial coverings available. Please contact your nearest TERRA office if you need a facial covering.
Face Covering Exceptions:
- If you are working alone in an office, vehicle, or at a job site.
- If your job has no in-person interaction.
- If you are, or are communicating with, an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing – or who relies on language cues such as facial markers and expression and mouth movements as a part of communication.

TERRA always addressed my questions or concerns.
I was nervous about working with an agency, because I had never worked with one before, but they are always on the ball whenever I had questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend them to my friends!
