Pandemic AAR Task Force

The Washington Military Department and the Washington Department of Health have been tasked by the Washington State Legislature to conduct a comprehensive statewide pandemic After Action Report and we are required to stand up a Task Force of members from different state agencies and associations.

We will utilize this page to announce when meetings will happen, as well as host agendas, meeting minutes and assorted information.

Washington state is entering its third year of our COVID-19 activation. The State Emergency Operations Center has remained activated ever since, marking this the longest activation in our history. Our employees have shown extraordinary commitment, resilience and determination during what has been the most difficult of times.

The state Department of Health has created this plan (PDF) to keep people safe and healthy as we move to the next phase of the pandemic and co-exist with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future.
