During a virtual Town Hall Wednesday night, Billig said the the changes will allow a little more “flexibility” in regard to the required metrics each region must meet to advance to the next phase of the reopening plan.

Inslee will be joined by Lacy Fehrenbach, assistant secretary of health, and Nick Streuli, executive director of external affairs for the Office of the Governor.
