Inslee Extends Statewide Restrictions Again
Governor Jay Inslee announced Wednesday a one week extension of his "Stay Safe-Stay Health" proclamation along with statewide restrictions imposed.
According to a press release, no changes were made in the proclamation aside from the expiration date. The extension of the statewide restrictions is now set to expire January 11th, 2021.
Said Inslee, "We understand the profound impact COVID is having on our healthcare system, families and businesses, but I am heartened by the number of Washingtonians who continue to do the right thing. If we continue distancing from others, wearing facial coverings and avoiding social gatherings, we will make it to the other side of this pandemic together.”
An updated reopening plan for businesses and workers impacted by the order will be released next week.
