On Tuesday, Sept. 16, the Northwest MLS shared an update to the protocols for all counties currently in Phase 2 of Washington state’s Safe Start plan.

In-person activities including showings, inspections, appraisals, and final walk-throughs may now include up to five (5) persons (including the broker). The prior Phase 2 restrictions limited the number of persons on site to three (3) persons (including the broker). Open houses are still not permitted in Phase 2 counties.

The protocols for Phase 1 and 1.5 counties and Phase 3 counties have not changed. Please note that no more than two (2) persons, including the broker, are permitted on site in Phase 1 and 1.5 counties.

For more information, please review the updated FAQ document and the county phase chart.
