Medical opinion supports stay-home orders

To the people who think that we can reopen this state for business immediately, a word of caution. I would like to see life normal again, but I also value life. Some of the people out there are quoting medical personnel saying that the country should open. What I see is the majority of medical opinions are that a slow return to normalcy is needed.

Those of you who would put your fellow man and neighbor at risk are irresponsible. People are opening in defiance of the stay-at-home order need to rethink their stand. I would also encourage the people of this state to step up and let government know of offenders. I would also like to thank Gov. Jay Inslee for his open leadership in this time of crisis.

I pray for the quick recovery of the persons affected by this virus and the return to normal as soon as possible.
