“Washington officials say residents will need to stay home, unless absolutely necessary. ‘Essential businesses’ may remain open to the public.”

“Gov. Jay Inslee announced the statewide order at Monday at 5:30 p.m. The order takes effect immediately for residents, and in 48 hours for businesses. The order will be in place for a minimum of two weeks.”

“Grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, gas stations and restaurants offering take-out are among the essential businesses that will be allowed to remain open. State officials urged residents to not rush these businesses and to not hoard supplies.

“The order means:

  • Grocery stores, banks, gas stations, pharmacies will be allowed to stay open. 
  • Restaurants offering take out will also be allowed to operate.
  • Private and public gatherings are barred, including weddings and funerals.
  • People will still be allowed to go outside for activities such as walking or exercise, but are reminded to keep at least 6 feet distance from other people.
  • Workplaces that can do their business remotely may remain open.”
