Gov. Inslee, CA. and OR. Governors issue travel advisory!

Washington Governor Jay Inslee - News release

Inslee issues travel advisory for Washington

Gov. Jay Inslee issued a travel advisory for Washington today, recommending a 14-day quarantine for interstate and international travel and asks residents to stay close to home. Inslee joined California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown in urging visitors entering their states or returning home from travel outside these states to self-quarantine to slow the spread of the virus. 

COVID-19 cases have doubled in Washington over the past two weeks. This puts our state in as dangerous a position today as we were in March,’ Inslee said. ‘Limiting and reducing travel is one way to reduce further spread of the disease. I am happy to partner with California and Oregon in this effort to help protect lives up and down the West Coast.'”

In addition to urging individuals arriving from other states or countries to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival, the states’ travel advisories recommend individuals limit their interactions to their immediate household. The advisories define essential travel as travel for work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care, and safety and security.”

Washington state travel advisory

“Asked to characterize the Washington advisory’s authority — whether it is a mandate and whether there are consequences for not following it — Governor’s Office spokesperson Mike Faulk said, ‘Put simply: These are recommendations, not requirements.'”

  1. Posted on twitter: Elon Musk had four tests – two came back negative and two came back positive. Tests were done by same person, same machine and on the same day. How accurate is the test? Maybe it’s time to test the test!
