REOPENING: King County stays in Phase 3 for at least three more weeks

As noted in last night’s pandemic-news roundup, today’s the day the state planned to announce which counties qualified to stay in Phase 3 and which would have to roll back. The decision is in:

As shown on that map from Gov. Inslee‘s office, only three counties have to roll back to Phase 2 – Pierce, Cowlitz, and Whitman. King County will stay in Phase 3. (King County was close to flunking one of the requirements, as shown here.) The next evaluation is due in three weeks – Monday, May 3rd.

    No way King Co. moves back to phase two if Inslee continues to change the metrics to suit his/business needs.1st it was changing the requirements of each region from  3 out 3 metrics at a certain level, then decided, “eh, 2 out of 3 isn’t bad!” Then further opened to phase three without much reason, now, another metrics change.

    I don’t think King county can afford to roll back to phase 2. They are desperate for money as it is.

    Well,  Maybe you should be living when things were static, such as living in a cave maybe, 500,000  years  ago.  All you would have to do is to be able to out run a sabre tooth tiger.  Science is not static.  It is constantly in motion going from discovery to discovery.  When can we expect to see you running for governor?

    For those who believe Inslee “caved” How are you going to punish the businesses that you believe made him “cave”???

    If you don’t believe the metrics and science then Texas, Georgia, Florida and a bunch of other places are open for biz. Go get yourself a ticket on a packed airplane and stay away awhile. You can ditch the mask once you get there. Just don’t bring it back here fool.

Sorry, comment time is over.
