The big news from Governor Inslee’s March 18th news conference is that workers in congregate settings (restaurants, manufacturing, and construction) will now be eligible for vaccines. See Governor Inslee’s announcement.

In addition to construction workers (deemed “essential”), the expansion of vaccines appointments will start March 31st for:

  • Anyone with two or more comorbidities
  • Anyone between the ages of 60 and 64
  • Anyone living in congregate settings (correctional facilities, group homes for those with disabilities, those experiencing homelessness, etc.)

If you have questions about vaccines in the workplace or impacts to a construction project due to the pandemic, please reach out to Jim Yand to get the information you need.

Amy Robinson, employment lawyer for the construction industry, will also cover this latest update in our upcoming construction webinar on Wednesday, March 31.
