COLFAX — The state Secretary of Health has approved a Phase 2 waiver request for Whitman County, effective immediately, Friday, May 15.
The request for a variance of quarantine orders comes two days after the county sought to reopen business and four days after a Dusty resident filed a lawsuit against the governor.
"I sincerely appreciate the extra effort our Public Health Department has put in to putting the application together," County Commission Chairman Michael Largent said, noting he was very pleased and "frankly somewhat surprised" at the speed with which the clearance was given.
