WAC 388-14A-2210

The department is proposing to amend WAC 388-14A-2210 What is the procedure for service by certified mail due to COVID-19? Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Postal Service (USPS) has altered certified mail delivery practices to limit in-person contact for signatures. DCS relies on the certified mail return receipt requested delivery method for service of various notices. Because these USPS practices do not have a projected end date at this time, DCS is proposing a permanent rule to ensure due process and adequate service under the modified USPS processes.
