Washington State Alert: Liquor and Cannabis Board – Reactivation of Certain Allowances for Health and Safety Reasons

CANNANNEW REPORT

To:       Cannabis Licensees Fr:        Liquor and Cannabis Board Re:      Reactivation of Certain Allowances for Health and Safety Reasons As you know, in June, Governor Inslee lifted most COVID-19 business restrictions put in place based on health and safety proclamations and/or Emergency Orders. In that directive, effective June 30, 2021, all business sectors were allowed to return to pre-pandemic capacity and operations, with limited exceptions. In keeping with the Governor’s directive, several LCB-created allowances designed to support licensees expired on July 31, 2021, unless otherwise specified. Since that time, the transmission of COVID-19 has increased dramatically due to the delta variant, especially among those who are not vaccinated. A statewide mask mandate and other health restrictions are also currently in place to combat transmission. For public health and safety reasons, the LCB is reactivating certain cannabis-specific allowances. Effective immediately, these allowances will be in place until Oct. 31, 2021. The LCB will review these allowances in late October and decide whether they should be extended again.
