Inslee explains his WA state recovery plan

Washington state Governor Jay Inslee announced his COVID-19 recovery plan for the state Tuesday evening, April 21. It includes three overriding goals:

Protect the health and safety of Washingtonians

Facilitate a safe start and transition to economic recovery

Support all people and communities

Inslee said it is unlikely many restrictions under the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order will be modified before May 4. Rather, this plan is intended to be a framework for the loosening of restrictions contingent on a steady decrease of the spread of COVID-19.

“It will look more like the turning of the dial than the flip of a switch,” Inslee said in the address. “We’re going to take steps and then monitor to see whether they work or if we must continue to adapt.”

Depending on health projections for the spread of the virus, some distancing restrictions may be in place for weeks or months to come. “In the coming days, we will receive additional health modeling projecting the course of this virus,” Inslee said. “We hope it will give us cause to begin lifting certain restrictions.”
