Emergency Declaration and COVID-19 Restrictions
On March 23, 2020, Governor Jay Inslee issued a statewide "Stay at Home Order" to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The proclamation states: “All people in Washington State shall immediately cease leaving their home or place of residence except: (1) to conduct or participate in essential activities, and/or (2) for employment in essential business services. This prohibition shall remain in effect until midnight on April 6, 2020, unless extended beyond that date.”
