Camp Murray, WA — Gov. Jay Inslee on March 23, 2020, announced a statewide “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order that requires everyone to stay home unless they are pursuing an essential activity such as shopping for groceries, picking up prescription medications or seeking emergency medical care. The order bans all social, spiritual and recreational gatherings and requires all non-essential businesses to close. The order details several categories of essential businesses and workers that can remain operational because they are critical to protecting the health and well-being of all Washingtonians.
On March 18, 2020, Gov. Inslee announced a temporary Moratorium on Evictions for certain residential tenants. Minimizing residential evictions is critical to enable Washingtonians to comply with the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order.
