Statewide Restrictions Extended for One Week
Gov. Jay Inslee announced yesterday a one-week extension of the "Stay Safe–Stay Healthy" proclamation, along with the statewide restrictions imposed. The extension of the statewide restrictions will now expire on January 11, 2021. These restrictions were not changed from the original announcement and include:
"We understand that this extension may be frustrating for some,” said Jennifer Johnson, Skagit County Public Health Director. “It is important to think about the many benefits that come from following these health measures—the positive impact each and every one of us can have on our community by staying home and staying healthy. By following these measures, we ensure that our family, friends, and loved ones will be around to see 2021.”
An updated reopening plan is currently being developed by the Governor’s office to provide a pathway for businesses and workers impacted by this order to reopen safely. The updated plan is expected to be released next week.
