COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) Outbreak Information

Updated September 19, 2020 

The Cascade Loop is a 440-mile scenic byway that crosses through many regions of Washington State including areas with patients diagnosed with COVID-19. The safety of visitors and local residents is our highest priority. Please educate yourself with the latest information before finalizing your travel planning. 

In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced a phased approach he and public health officials will take for resuming recreational, social and business activities throughout the state. Every phase will still require social distancing and appropriate health precautions including the use of personal protective equipment in a number of workplaces.

Please note that as you travel the Loop, you will be crossing through communities and natural areas with varying levels of public access. Please research the destinations that you plan explore in advance and always, please Recreate Responsibly.
