With the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Washington, Governor Jay Inslee announced this week that the state won’t be easing restrictions for two more weeks.
According to the Seattle Times, Governor Inslee said the rise in cases in Washington and the estimated transmission rate indicating infected people are spreading the virus to others has left Washington in “a dangerous position” if left unchecked.
“You can drown with the tide coming in, if you don’t move, even though it’s really slow, just as much … as a big, instant wave,” Inslee said at a press conference. “And that’s the situation we’re looking at. An incoming tide, in my view.”
