    March 23, 2020, OLYMPIA, Wash. — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee issued a statewide order to stay-at-home and stay healthy to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

    The order is in effect for all Washington residents and will continue until we hear otherwise. We are now in our fourth month. Face masks are now required state wide when out in public. It's been a long haul people. Hang in there.

    • 1. How does the coronavirus spread?
        Covid-19 is a respiratory virus, and, much like influenza and others in this category, it spreads when humans cough or sneeze out tiny droplets of mucus and saliva. If it lands on a hard surface like a doorknob or countertop, the virus can survive anywhere from a few hours to a few days. New research suggests that coronavirus particles may also be able to survive for a few hours in aerosol form, contained in smaller droplets suspended in the air. When you come into contact with a droplet, either by being in close proximity to a forceful sneezer or by touching a surface that said sneezer has touched with their sneezey hands, you can become infected. Though coronavirus can’t be absorbed through your skin, it can enter your system when you touch your mouth, nose or eyes, or through a cut.
    • 2. Is it safe to eat out or order delivery?
        The government is now urging everyone in the United States to avoid eating out in restaurants and bars and to suspend unnecessary shopping trips. Many eateries are still open for delivery and to-go service during the shut-down, but is it safe to eat food prepared by someone else? Fortunately, there’s currently no evidence of coronavirus transmission through food. Few viruses can survive basic food safety measures, and fewer still can endure the acidic rollercoaster that is the human digestive system.

    Chapter WA-A did not have a Gathering in Mar, Apr, May, June, July, August, September or October. King County is still in a Phase 2 posture. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 and the restrictions in King County and elsewhere, the Golden Steer cannot hold a group our size in our meeting room. They have a limit of 6 diners at a time to eat together. But we still have had rides originating from there.

    • What is PHASE 1
      • Phase 1 allows some construction, fishing, hunting, and park access, as well as retail curbside pickup, auto sales, and car washes with social distancing restrictions. All Washington counties have moved on from Phase 1.
    • What is Modified PHASE 1
      • Modified Phase 1 allows outdoor restaurant seating at 50% capacity and indoor seating at 25% capacity with tables 6 feet apart, retail at 15% capacity, personal services like salons and barbers at 25% capacity, professional services like accountants and insurance agents at 25% capacity and all construction.
    • What is PHASE 2
      • Phase 2 increases outdoor recreational activities, such as camping, allows small group gatherings of five people or less, opens barbershops and salons, opens restaurants at 50% capacity and tables of five people or less. Pet services, including grooming, could resume. Some professional services could resume, although tele-working will still be encouraged.
    • What is PHASE 3
      • In Phase 3, group sizes could expand to 50 people or fewer. Non-essential travel could resume. Restaurants could increase capacity to 75% capacity. Gyms, recreational facilities, like pools, and movie theaters could reopen at 50% capacity. Libraries, museums, and government buildings could also reopen.
