We donate to the #Ballard Food Bank monthly and have done for years. This morning I made a large extra donation, and want to remind folks in the community who are struggling that aside from food, they offer financial relief services for evictions and utilities shut-offs. Talk to them; they can help. Also if you're healthy and able, they need volunteers to make deliveries and such.
Stay strong. Help each other. #seattle

Gov. Jay Inslee said late Sunday he would sign an emergency declaration temporarily shutting down bars, restaurants and places of entertainment and recreation, and cap all public gatherings to 50 people, in the latest bid to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The executive action, set for Monday, will also prohibit gatherings with fewer than 50 people “unless previously announced criteria for public health and social distancing are met,” he said in a statement Sunday. The order would allow restaurants to provide take-out and delivery services but not dining in, according to the statement.
“These are very difficult decisions, but hours count here and very strong measures are necessary to slow the spread of the virus. I know there will be significant economic impacts to all our communities and we are looking at steps to help address those challenges,” Inslee said in the statement.
The latest measures came as pressure built on officials in Washington state – with 769 confirmed cases and 42 deaths due to COVID-19, the most reported in the nation – to take action, as a series of city and state officials across the country announced they would close bars and restaurants or restrict their operations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended Sunday that gatherings of 50 or more people be suspended for the next eight weeks.
There will be a press conference in about fifteen minutes.
"Gov. Jay Inslee is expected Wednesday to restrict gatherings of more than 250 people in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties, a move aimed at sports, concerts and other cultural events." https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/politics/gov-inslee-to-restrict-gatherings-of-more-than-250-people-including-sports-and-concerts/
