Hello from sunny Thailand. I am a resident of Everett wondering about the ifs and hows on getting home again. First, I have been travelling around Southeast Asian countries for over six months now. I am technically a disabled senior, without any respiratory or organ problems, who is at this time perfectly healthy. But, I am ready to come home. I have a strong family ties with grandkids and a very supportive church at Trinity Episcopal in Everett, along with numerous friends all located in the Snohomish Country area.
I guess I’m hoping this letter gets published so that the powers that be and other citizens realize they have many U.S. residents hanging in limbo. I have had letters from the State Department and Homeland Security, all saying to return and quarantine, yet they will not answer me back as to when and where. I have extended my visa, looked into longer more expensive flights toward home, arranged my own self-quarantine upon my return. But no one tells me if that’s sufficient. I have written public health, the U.S. Embassy, senators, Congress, even the president and those (hopefully) to be. No answers. I know Washington state is in crisis but there are others of us who need some advice.
