Inslee Announces Upcoming Rescission of Twelve Proclamations Related to COVID-19

On July 29, 2022, Governor Inslee announced his intent to rescind Proclamation 20-32.11 on October 27, 2022. When the proclamation ends, providers will once again be required to attest they have met continuing education (CE) requirements for license renewal.

On July 29, 2022, Governor Inslee announced his intent to rescind Proclamation 20-32.11 on October 27, 2022. This proclamation temporarily waived the requirements in Chapter 246-12 WAC related to continuing education for health care professionals. When the proclamation ends on October 27, 2022, providers will once again be required to attest they have met continuing education (CE) requirements for license renewal.

The Department of Health will excuse licensed dentists and dental anesthesia assistants from attesting to completion of CE requirements as a requirement for license renewal until they have completed their next full CE cycle after October 27, 2022. “Full cycle” means the full timeframe for completing CE, which is every three years for licensed dentists and dental anesthesia assistants. This will assure licensed dentists and dental anesthesia assistants have ample time to meet CE requirements for license renewal.

If you have any questions, please contact the DOH call center at (360) 236-4700.
