Inslee tightens restrictions on restaurants, bars across Washington as cases rise

“Indoor dining will be limited to members of the same household and alcohol sales must end at 10 p.m. For those who want to dine with people outside of their household, they can still sit outside at restaurants. Restaurants will need to close vending games, like pool tables and darts.”

Rules are easier to follow if the reason for them is well understood. What time zone does the coronavirus operate on?

When and how does the sale of alcohol impact public safety?

Promoting public safety Re: masks should extend to public safety related to protests on I-5.

After enabling criminal conduct, WSP will no longer enable criminal conduct:

“Blocking a freeway is a crime and no longer are we going to enable that criminal conduct to continue,” said State Patrol Capt. Ron Mead, who made the decision to no longer close the interstate. “We are not going to be allowing protesters to access the freeway unimpeded, and there are consequences for criminal conduct.”
