OLYMPIA β Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has extended restrictions imposed earlier to combat the rapidly rising number of positive cases, hospitalizations and deaths in the state due to COVID-19. The restrictions previously announced on Nov. 15 were set to expire on Dec. 14, but have been subsequently extended through the holidays to Jan. 4, 2021.
βWhat we do between now β when COVID activity is still at crisis levels β and the time when vaccines are widely available, is literally a matter of life and death,β Inslee said at a Dec. 8 press conference announcing the extensions.
