Construction Phase 2 Guidance Released

It is reported Phase 2 is drafted to include ALL construction projects, and indications are this eliminates the need for additional phases.

The Governor has indicated that only counties approved for phase 2 are allowed to engage in phase 2 construction. This means counties still in phase 1 must continue to comply with the construction phase 1 requirements.

Phase 2 county details: Whitman County in eastern Washington is the 9th county to get approval for the second phase. Columbia, Garfield, Lincoln, Ferry, Pend Oreille, Wahkiakum, Skamania, and Stevens counties have also received variances. Spokane applied and was denied at this time.

New Update Regarding ACI Certification and Events: 

Governor Inslee has extended his "Stay Home | Stay Healthy" emergency order through May 31st. Recent announcements of reopening the state’s economy in 4 phases gives additional guidance for the coming weeks / months. We continue to vigorously track state implemented strategies, business practices and Federal, State, and local orders.

To restart certification efforts, we are working within the Governor’s Guidelines as issued on May 4th. In coordination with our examiners and testing locations we are moving towards meeting certification needs, as scheduling permits. Where necessary for good health and safety of all, we are re-imagining our processes, venues, and approach to certification sessions. As we recognize everyone must do their part, please be prepared to demonstrate your good health (no colds, fever, and symptom free) to be part of any exam/performance session. Bring your own PPE, eyewear, masks, and gloves. We will have limited supplies. Best advise……. if you are not feeling well, please stay home, get better and will catch you once you are symptom free.

Rescheduled sessions will be conducted first; additional sessions will be scheduled as time allows. We will do our best to accommodate the needs but please recognize certification on demand is not something we can do. Sincere appreciation for your continued understanding, cooperation, and patience. Please continue to monitor for updates.
