No, according to the Department of Commerce and confirmed by the Governor’s office, essential employees in the state of Washington do not need to carry a pass or other documentation on their persons or in their vehicles to travel to and from work. Some employers are giving such documentation to their employees in an abundance of caution, but this is not required.
