Washington state’s stay-at-home order at a glance

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — In order to slow the spread of the coronavirus, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has ordered the state’s more than 7 million residents to stay home unless necessary and for non-essential businesses to close for at least two weeks, expanding previous orders that banned large gatherings and closed bars and dine-in restaurants. As of Monday, more than 2,200 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in the state, and at least 123 people have died. Inslee said he was concerned that many weren’t taking the outbreak seriously, and he said the extra measures were needed in order to save lives.
