On March 23, 2020, Jay Inslee, Governor of the State of Washington issued the Stay Home – Stay Healthy Proclamation. In part the proclamation states:

“All people in Washington State shall immediately cease leaving their home or place of residence except: (1) to conduct or participate in essential activities, and/or (2) for employment in essential business services. This prohibition shall remain in effect until midnight on April 6, 2020, unless extended beyond that date.”

Remember, with so much change and uncertainly right now, doing what is in the best interest of the children should be top priority.
