Governor's Order: Stay Home, Stay Healthy
Governor Jay Inslee has issued several orders including the Stay Home-Stay Healthy proclamation, prohibiting people from leaving their home or place of residence except to conduct or participate in (1) essential activities, and/or (2) employment in providing essential business services.
To report a violation of the order, do not call 911. Call the non-emergency number of your local police agency for individual violations, or submit complaint online about a business or landlord issue.
