Pandemic-related Changes on Washington State Ferries

With the state lifting most pandemic-related restrictions on June 30, our ferry system has changed the following: 

  • No longer enforcing COVID-19 capacity limits
  • No longer advising people coming aboard in a personal vehicle to remain
    in their vehicles.
  • No longer requiring tollbooth employees to use selfie sticks with self-swipe credit card readers (they may continue to if they choose).
  • No longer closing off some seating or turnstiles.
  • Slowly reopening drinking fountains, but many onboard won’t be reopened
    until the vessel’s potable water is turned back on.
  • Face masks are required only in indoor areas in compliance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s public transportation order.
