COVID-19 Updates

Updated 3-29-2021 

On March 11, 2021, Gov. Jay Inslee announced that the Healthy Washington: Roadmap to Recovery will be transitioning from a regional approach to a county-by-county evaluation process. The governor also announced that a new third phase of the Roadmap has been added, and effective Monday, March 22, the entire state will enter Phase 3. More detailed information can be found in this article from the Governor’s Office. Find a county’s phase here.

We are in Phase 3 effective March 22nd, this means that restaurants can be open to 50% capacity, and  most indoor activities can resume. There is still a mask mandate in effect. 

The Forks Chamber of Commerce / Forks Visitor Information Center is open daily Monday – Saturday 10 am – 4pm and Sunday 11 am – 4 pm. We have a limit of 4 people, same party in the visitor center. We also have sanicans outside for your convenience.  Please review this list of COVID-related tourism alerts for many FAQs.

Excerpt From Clallam County Emergency Management:
What do I do if I see someone not wearing a mask?
If it is a member of the public going about their daily life without a mask and you don’t know them, the best option is to do nothing at all. There are many reasons to not wear a mask, including medical, social, and personal safety reasons. They are not required to disclose those specific reasons to you and you shouldn’t ask.
