Our stay at home is in place until May 31. And we are not yet all the way into Phase 1 yet. But, he says we could be by May 15.
He says there will be 2 to 3 weeks in a phase. So say we hit Phase 1 on May 15, then Phase 2 will happen towards the middle of June and so it will be July before I get to swim again and August before I can go to a Mariner game.
Moving from phase to phase is number dependent. He outlined what numbers of cases/deaths have to meet for how long before we move to a phase. It's pretty darned straightforward and logical.
Plus he said that other counties - those in the middle of the state who are in better virus shape than those in the more populated areas - will likely be able to move through the phases more quickly.
It all makes sense to me and I am very impressed with his plan. I'm sure glad I live here.
On the other hand, Seattle's mayor is sounding like phase 4 will not be here in Seattle this year. I don't have the same respect for her that I do for the governor but she is the mayor.
