This is going to change the face of the region...So many small businesses will not survive this. But it needs to be done and frankly I feel restrictions need to be even tighter.

My 6yr old goes to a private school in Skagit Co. I want to pull her out since they are going to lag behind the big 3 counties and close finally when it’s too late...But my wife is in the “Everyone is WAY over reacting to all of this and it’s not a big deal” camp.

Been waiting for that to create the domino effect.

Ours should be next here in Edmonds. We have Friday off, so may have one last day tomorrow before an extended shut down.

With technology today... those types of jobs are actually plentiful.     Much more so than even 10-15 years ago.

Probably 80% of the region is working from home right now given the situation.

Its probably all over up there like everywhere else... they think it was spreading quietly in WA state for 6 weeks before anyone was paying attention.

Nearly everyone is now remote work. We have a few die hards that don't think the virus is a big issue and have been showing up to the office. Downtown Seattle and Bellevue are dead quiet. Everett and Tacoma are still moving on like nothing has happened.

That may be true and if so I would go for it, but to also find one that is regular business hours as stated before seems to be hard. I would like to keep my routine with family, church and sports going.
