Friends and neighbors,

I know many of us are scared, nervous, or anxious in this period of uncertainty. If you have questions, just know that you are not alone, and that your state agencies are working to answer them as soon as possible.

The State of Washington website has the most up-to-date information for resources and statistics.

This is a crisis that we will get through together. But in order to do that, we need to be following the advice of our state health officials and governor by staying home unless it is absolutely necessary to leave. Social distancing will save lives if we are all working together.

I believe in our state, and the resilience we hold. We will get through this.
