Stay Home, Stay Healthy

Gov. Jay Inslee and the state Department of Health announced today:

  • Extension of the "Stay Home, Stay Healthy" order through May 31
  • Officials are working with industries to develop new protocols that could soon also allow for retail curbside pickup, car washes, landscaping and house cleaning services, and drive-in spiritual services with one household per vehicle.  
  • A reopening plan that outlines four phases of reopening businesses and resuming activities involving group gatherings, travel, shopping, and recreation. The focus is on reopening safely and protecting the health of workers and the general public.
  • The governor’s official order with more details will be released in the next couple days.

This is hard. We must help each other, and we must be resilient. Every one of us likely has feelings of sadness, anxiety or anger. Being patient and kind to one another and finding ways to support our neighbors and our loved ones is how, together, we’ll see our way through the very difficult personal and economic challenges many people are experiencing. Reach out if you or someone you care about needs help. Offer help to those who need it, and accept it from those who offer.


Week of Gratitude - #BlockTheReboundKitsap

This entire week is dedicated to all who are working to keep us safe and healthy during the coronavirus pandemic. We are able to stay home and stay healthy because of their work.

Today we thank the public works and utility workers who keep our infrastructure operational and safe. These workers maintain our sewers and stormwater systems, roads and traffic signs, remove our solid waste, keep the power and internet on, and ensure our water is clean and safe to drink.
