Photojournal: Stay-At-Home Order Issued

In a televised evening address, Gov. Jay Inslee issues an immediate statewide “stay-at-home” order for at least two weeks. Inslee had resisted giving such an order despite Washington being the first U.S. state hit by an outbreak and other states already ordering stay-at-home or shelter-in-place (California, New York, Illinois, Connecticut, New Jersey, Oregon, etc.). But after widespread reports of crowding at Washington parks over the weekend and shocking photos of residents failing to maintain 6-ft safe distance, the order was finally issued. Seattle becomes quieter than ever.
