OLYMPIA — Most state Department of Fish and Wildlife employees will be furloughed Friday, July 17, to reduce agency expenses in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The furlough day is the third of four planned — the fourth occurs Friday, July 24.

According to agency officials, game wardens will remain on patrol, but most other services will be shuttered for the day. Some hatchery operations employees will also remain on the job.

Agency Director Kelly Susewind said Fish and Wildlife will operate at only 80% staffing this month to reduce costs.
