Governor Jay Inslee and Trudi Inslee address the state

Last night, Gov. Inslee and First Lady Trudi Inslee asked Washingtonians to rethink holiday celebrations by celebrating only with people from the same household. "Anyone can get COVID, even if they think they're doing the right thing," said Gov. Inslee. "We cannot wait until our hospitals' halls are lined with gurneys waiting for rooms before we take decisive action."

"What happens next in our state depends on what happens in our families and in our homes," said First Lady Trudi Inslee. "That's why we implore you: Rethink spending time with people outside of your household on Thanksgiving and the December holidays."

Travel advisory issued 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. 

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.

Taking COVID-19 seriously

When Susan was diagnosed with COVID-19 in the spring, she was a healthy woman in her late 30s with no underlying health conditions. Six months later, she’s still experiencing symptoms. Stories like hers are part of the landscape shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic.

By sharing her story, her hope is that those who doubt the seriousness of this disease will see things from a different perspective and follow the masking, social distancing, and other public health guidelines to help minimize the spread of COVID-19. It can impact anyone, young or old, whether you have underlying health conditions or not.
