Governor Inslee lays out statewide contact tracing plan for COVID-19

By Mario Lotmore | Lynnwood Times Staff

  • May 20, 2020: Clarified the statement with WA state DOH, “refuse to cooperate with contact tracers and/or refuse testing, will not” to “refuse testing or self-isolation, may not” in the latter portion of the article. Also included a statement by the Washington State Department of Health
  • May 19, 2020: Added the revised slide, “Confine at home” from Inslee’s press release
  • May 19 2020: Updated with a statement by John Wiesman, Secretary of Health and Dr. Kathy Lofy, State Health Officer

At his May 12 press conference, Governor Jay Inslee laid out the plans for the statewide contact tracing initiative.

“[The initiative] is robust, it is vigorous and it is comprehensive, and it needs to be all three to be successful,” Inslee said. “If we do not succeed in this second stage of our efforts, this virus could come bright back and bite us.”

Inslee said that the state has seen early success in its efforts against COVID-19, and this initiative will represent a transition from one strategy to another. Social distancing was the primary tool against the virus, and when the state is looking to open the economy, contact tracing and isolation of those who test positive will be the next tool.

“If this is successful, it will allow us to open our economy,” Inslee said. “This next stage… actually will be more difficult, and its success will depend on both the state and local public health officials and families who will need to be committed to this effort to help their community.”

Box the virus

The information Inslee provided was labeled as “Contact Tracing: Box in The Virus.” The steps were listed as follows:

contact tracing

Contact tracing involves interviewing people with positive COVID-19 tests to identify who they’ve been in contact with, getting those people tested and then making sure they isolate themselves and their families.

Isolation/Quarantine upon first symptoms

The Governor recommends that people are to quarantine immediately for 14-days upon experiencing the first systems. This includes entire households – e.g. all members of the household must isolate with the possible infected person.

Anyone who has had contact with that person will be quarantined until they have tested negative, even if they have not tested positive or shown symptoms.

People should confine at home immediately upon first symptoms. People testing positive need to confine at home until at least 10 days have passed since first symptoms and at least 72 hours have passed without a fever (without use of fever-reducing medication) and they see improvement in cough or shortness of breath.

When someone tests positive for COVID-19, an interviewer will reach out by phone. They will ask who that person has been in close contact with, then reach out to those other people to let them know they have been exposed.

Close contacts need to confine themselves at home for 14 days after the exposure and monitor for fever, cough and shortness of breath for the duration of confinement. The state encourages testing of all close contacts, regardless of symptoms. Support is available for people who must confine at home.

“At the sign of any symptoms, people should confine themselves at home. Voluntary confinement for both ill persons and the members of their households will be a major challenge, but it is one of the most critical portions of this entire endeavor,” Inslee said. “Individuals and their households will need to be confined for 14 days if they are exposed to the virus. We know this will present challenges for some families and we are looking at ways to address them.”

Below is the original slide presented by the governor during his May 12 contact tracing press conference. According to Washington State Department of Health spokesperson, the slide conflated “isolation” and “quarantine” and was not made by health officials. The revised slide was submitted in the governor’s official press release as a correction.

Below is the revised slide provided in the Governor’s official press release several hours after his live press briefing on May 12. Please note the differences.

contact tracing

Test widely

Contact tracers will reach out to notify those that may have been exposed to COVID-19 within 24 to 48 hrs of a positive test result. The governor compared the contract tracers or “COVID brigade,” to the operation of a “fire brigade.”

contact tracing

Isolate quickly, identify, and quarantine contacts

To isolate quickly, 1,371 contact tracers will be trained to implement steps 2-5. The plan is to hire additional contact tracers including volunteers to relief national guardsman.

The national gaurd’s function will not be that of law enforcement, only public health.

contact tracing

This effort will be a partnership between local health districts and the Washington State Department of health. Individuals should quarantine immediately upon first symptoms and stay quarantined until receiving a negative test result. 

Those who test positive will need to isolate for 14 days; that includes everyone who lives in the household. An interviewer will call those who test positive for COVID-19 to identify and inform close contacts of potential exposure.

Inslee also spent time talking about the privacy measures related to contact tracing. Individuals’ data will only be accessible to public health professionals; it will not be shared with anyone else. Contacts will not be told the name of the person who may have exposed them to COVID-19.

By the end of the week, Inslee said the state will have 1,371 contact tracers trained and ready; 351 of those will be national guard, 390 will be Department of Licensing and 630 will be State/Local health professionals.

Contact tracers will not ask for the following information: immigration status, social security number, financial info or marital status.

Community Health Volunteers help public health agencies with customer care/service, data gathering and entry and analysis, language skills, and much more. Volunteer assignments may vary in scope, location, time and length of commitment. A current healthcare license or medical background is not required to volunteer. Email doh-volunteer@doh.wa.gov for more information or visit the Washington State Emergency Registry of Volunteers (WaServ) website to register and indicate your interest.

Enforcement

For those businesses/individuals that don’t comply, the governor stated that he confirmed with Attorney General Bob Ferguson, there will be sanctions in civil or crimal court.

At timestamp 38:55 in the video of the press conference below, one reporter asked: “When it comes to contact tracing, how are you guys going to handle people or families who want to refuse to test or to self isolate? If they want to leave their home to get groceries I know you’ve said they can’t do that; how will you make sure they don’t?

Below is Jay Inslee’s response:

“We will have attached to the families a family support person who will check in with them to see what they need on a daily basis… and help them. If they can’t get a friend to do their grocery shopping, we will help get them groceries in some fashion. If they need pharmaceuticals to be picked up, we will make sure they get their pharmaceuticals… That’s going to help encourage them to maintain their isolation too.

“As far as refusal, it just shouldn’t come to that, and it really hasn’t. We’ve had really good success when we ask people to isolate, and they’ve done so in really high percentages, so we’re happy about that, and we believe that will continue.”

Therefore, those individuals that refuse testing or self-isolation, may not be allowed to leave their homes to purchase basic necessities such as groceries and/or prescriptions. Those persons will need to make arrangements through friends, family, or a state provided “family support personnel.” According to the spokesperson for the Washington State Department of Health, there has not been any direction to require individuals be tested for COVID-19.

Below is from a statement released on May 15 provided by John Wiesman, Secretary of Health and Dr. Kathy Lofy, State Health Officer on the clarification of involuntary isolation or quarantine.

“Our experience during the COVID-19 pandemic and with other infectious diseases shows the vast majority of people we ask are willing to follow recommendations and isolate or quarantine themselves. Isolation and quarantine at home continues to be the best option and our recommendation for those who can do so safely. However, all of these actions are voluntary and confidential, despite the misinformation being spread by some.”

The statement concludes, “The authority to involuntary isolate or quarantine an individual rests with local health officers. Each local health jurisdiction in Washington has plans and processes in place should involuntary isolation or quarantine be needed. This authority is rarely used as a last resort when someone is intentionally putting others at risk.

Therefore, any person not voluntarily complying could be deemed to be a person “intentionally putting others at risk,” in which case involuntary isolation or quarantine is within the authority of health officials.

    We have been in utter lockdown for 50 days now. The virus has a maximum symptomatic window of 4 weeks. Maximum. Therefore, those of us who have been exposed either are already symptomatic or asymptomatic. The epidemiological curve provided by the WA Dept. of Health shows the virus in steep decline. Many States have opened up and have not demonstrated any epidemiological “spikes”. Washington is opening up and is showing no spikes.

    This “initiative” makes no sense logically, epidemiologically or from a medical stand point. It only makes sense as a desperate measure to extend the bogus “emergency” that Inslee has used to usurp our Constitutional rights. Inslee no longer has any precedent for further lockdown extensions so he’s tying to intimidate us with this vain effort.

      I completely agree with you. Locking people in their homes and refusing to allow them to get food or medicine? That’s Nazi Germany. Especially considering there aren’t people dying in the streets. He needs to be physically removed from office and jailed for such an order. He is a regular human being. He’s NOT above the law and the masses had better wake up fast.

      The ones who refuse to quarantine or get tested should get together by the thousands. They can’t arrest everyone. Jay Inslee is more compassionate towards criminals in jail than he is towards law abiding citizens.

      To add to James’ info, Inslee’s stay at home order was on March 23rd. For two weeks after that order the rate of positive infections continued to accelerate and stayed elevated for another 10 days after that. I would submit his actions were not very effective. Now, since April 12, without any change in the orders, the rate of positive infections dropped by over 50% (and all while the number of tests greatly increased). So, the drop in rates (also reflected in the WA hospitalization rates) occurred without any new government action.
      My question is: If Stay-At-Home only weakly affected the outcome and if without change in policy the virus wanes on its own, what makes anyone including Inlsee believe lifting SAH will make a marked difference in the outcome?

      I don’t have an issue with contact tracing if it is voluntary. Tracing followed by forced testing and isolation will never survive constitutional scrutiny.

        People really need to rise up to this garbage. It is never voluntary. They may tell you it is, but don’t believe it. Back in the 30’s they promoted social security as voluntary, but look where we are today, no one can work without the number. Governments always lie, if they told the truth they wouldn’t be around for long.

          Luke@ Lynnwood Times,
          Why is this article written in such a benign manner, like you’re reporting on Seafair events, or the Weiner dog races (oh never mind, those are all cancelled). Are you not outraged, at the very least mildly concerned about this violation of our rights, the police state edict? This article is written like it’s no big deal. Really frightening a reporter is OK with citizens being arrested for not complying to forced testing and quarantine of children!

      He and his daughter work for Bill Gates’s. The depopulation freak who wants to put tracking chips in us via the so called covid vaccine. Those of us who survived the vaccine will be tracked like cattle for the rest of our lives.Because tracking us on our cell phones just is not invasive enough. They also spy through alexa, security cameras, smart TV’s and more but again, that’s not enough for those freaks. Don’t forget social media.

      No doubt he has been paid off to keep us locked down till that inhuman shot comes. I heard from hundreds of doctors from around the world that they are faking the numbers. If someone dies of heart attack doctors are forced to put covid 19. The tests are also contaminated. Yup, they have been exposed for that too. Along with many other illegal treasonous offenses.
      Also the name of this tracing bill which is not legal yet is H.R. 6666. Really? They just had to call it that? It says quarantine at home is no longer acceptable. So they contaminate us with covid19 and then they come drag your whole family out of the house to go to some FEMA camp. The kids go to CPS which is known for sex trafficking kid’s. If they take us, we will not be seen again.
      So they have been exposed, so why are they allowed to move forward with this INSANITY? I guess everyone in just the right spot is paid off. Doctors are trying to fight for us but it doesn’t serm to matter.
      I have never been sick from covid 19 and neither has anyone i have known. So they are keeping healthy people hostage to push this vaccine. It will make Bill Gates’s and company trillions of dollar’s. If it’s mandatory.
      Because yanking us out of our homes makes more sense than staying at home. Most of them have been exposed for being pedophiles as well. If I was a parent, I would not let them touch my child, let alone take them out of the house. These people need to burn in hell. I’m tired of their lies. They have sick and twisted agendas being pushed through, using this virus they messed with as an excuse to take away our freedom and rights. They could give a crap less about any of us. Look up Dr Buttar on YouTube. They are trying hard to shut him and his doctor friends up. Good luck to you and your family. I hope we survive this. They are responsible for so many death’s so far, but it’s not a high enough number for them. I watched one video where the lady said they were not able to infect enough of us. Yup, that’s what she said. But we better let them come into our homes and test us? When we know their intentions? GTFOOH!!! 😳🤥

    I for one. as a young american woman. would not consent to have either my parents, or boyfriend or my employer have the information of where i go and what i do. when im not with them. i would consider it abusive , invasive, and grounds for a end to the relationship. the same with the government. this is abusive and will lead to people being stalked and feeling like they are stalked, and harrassed. if someone comes to my home to test me, and visits multiple locations like this. they would be potentially transmitting something from someone they tested to the next location etc. we do not need this. this is 5 months into the outbreak. inslee is in bed with both china and bill gates. cc https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/times-watchdog/in-hunt-for-coronavirus-supplies-gov-inslee-looks-globally-and-within-his-personal-network/ why is someone UNELECTED from MICROSOFT And BILL GATES DIRECTING THIS AND THE GOVENOR LIKE THEY ARE A PUPPET ? bill gates has had a fantasy for decads about population control, and massive government surveillance. cc page 18 rockefeller report where this #plandemic was planned ten years ago https://www.nommeraadio.ee/meedia/pdf/RRS/Rockefeller%20Foundation.pdf more here http://toresays.com/2020/04/18/lock-step-the-rockefeller-foundations-2010-plan-to-enslave-humanity-with-plandemic/ …. the washington state legislature must stop this now. as well as bob ferguson the attorney general of wasthingon state. i call for inslee and bill gates to be arrested immeditaley .

      You are absolutely right. They are satanic pedophiles, obsessed with population control. Isn’t there any good guy’s left in power? Hundreds of doctor’s are telling the truth about them murdering us, lying and saying every death is covid19. Not all of us are ignorant idiots. The tracing bill is not legal yet. They just had to call it H.R. 6666. They are not even trying to hide their evil agenda anymore. Vaccines are not suppose to have tracking chips in them. Or toxic crap that is meant to murder us. But we better comply? Why mot just save us all a lot of time and just shoot us? Oh because vaccines is the only legal way to murder people. That law that only protects the vaccine maker from any and all consequences, when millions of people die. This is the world we live in. I hope they all burn in hell.
      I wish you and your loved one’s good luck. I hope we all make it through this. It looks pretty hopeless.

      The same could be said about the reaction to the virus. So maybe I can articulate what the others could not; what is the purpose of government? To keep us safe? From what and to what extent? To what measure is required for government intervention, 1,000s of people are killed and injured in car accidents should we tell our neighbors not to drive to work? For 250 years the declaration of independence, our ethos, has been the defining principle of our country that purpose of government is to ensure the rights of the people and that among them was Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The context of the last not being hedonistic but that a person is free to choose how they contribute to the development of the community (1776 was a feudal class system). Life isn’t without risks and those risks are yours and yours alone to set. You want social distancing then you social distance yourself. If a person chooses to continue to the one who’s responsible for their responsibilities then it is no ones right to restrict their freedom of movement.
      It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.

    All of the comments I’ve read sound paranoid, like they’re written by conspiracy theorists. Locking people in their homes without giving them access to food, water, and health care or the ‘shutting up’ practice they used in the old days is wrong. Asking people to stay home until they are no longer contagious while checking in daily and delivering essential items is fair and prudent. If people don’t follow the quarantine while they or their family member is contagious the perpetrator will face the civil or criminal court, not be taken away or shot. Did you guys watch the same video that I did? No one is changing the constitution or taking away your rights. Simply asking you to stay in your homes for two weeks in order to stop the spread of a virus that is overwhelming our health care workers/ systems. Health care workers already collect our personal information and keep it safe. It wont be shared or sold. Inslee specifically said they won’t be asking about information involving your race, religion, or citizenship. If someone identifies they had contract with you then you will only be asked to take a test and stay home for two weeks if positive. Not be shipped off anywhere. It really doesn’t seem like too much to ask to save lives.

      Those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither. And he did say “one way or another”. We will comply.

      If you don’t, you have to stay home and essentially starve Because the “family support” person assigned to you (read: gestapo) will
      Make sure you don’t.

      So, it’s comply or starve and have your children taken away to quarantine camps.

        He doesn’t address the alternative solutions at all (see Dr Scott Atlas, former Chief of Neuroradiology at The Stanford University Medical Center snd senior a Hoover Institute fellow ) but they go to the most draconian methods first. Once these people-control and surveillance methods are in place they are easy to abuse and hard to undo (see NSA surveillance, which is not a conspiracy theory). There are real issues here which are brushed aside by the Dems with promises of no abuse – now.

Well, my dear, W.H.O. suggested you be removed from your house and NOT quarantine at home because that’s where the infected are harboring. They suggest taking you to a place to quarantine. Each step is not simply doing what’s asked but one step closer to taking those freedoms you suggest aren’t. #naive

      At least 50% of those infected will have NO symptoms. Many more will have minimal symptoms. Some will need emergent card. The idea was to “flatten the curve” – now it is to eliminate all infections, something we know is impossible at this point. For the science, please google and read Dr Scott Atlas, former Chief of Neuroradiology at the Stanford University Medical Center. There is another path to opening up that is not even being considered by the powers that be.

      Yeah they also told us 2 weeks to “stop the spread”, then it was 30 days to “flatten the curve” don’t you see how they keep moving the goal posts? You are the one who is believing the conspiracy. Covid 19 is harmless to healthy people. with a 0.03 max deathrate according to a Stanford university study. 99% of the people who catch it, recover completely. Why did they shut down the economy over a 0.03% death rate? McDonalds kills more people than that a year.

      c19 is mild to harmless in about 99% of sufferers. There is no reason to be obsessing over it, and it is already petering out in the US. So, no it is the ‘conspiracy theorists’ that are far more sane on this topic than the governor, who is pushing intrusive 3rd Reich inspired policy (predicated on the LIE that this is a super deadly virus that we must track/trace/isoloate/quarantine/eradicate, etc.).

      This is a disease that is not understood. What is known is that 90+% are asymptomatic. More 100+ year olds have died from it than under 30’s. The vast majority of deaths are over 70 with co-morbidities. The criterion for COVID death determination conflates all deaths with COVID deaths. NY can even declare a death COVID with a negative CV test. Hospitals everywhere are so empty that health care staff are laid off. And now apparently a US Navy ship has 13 sailors who have been reinfected?

      Are you saying that taking away every healthy workers right to work not a violation of the constitution? When did the Governor or any other politician gain the power to decide what constitutes essential work? Perhaps we are discussing two different Constitutions.

      By your logic, Inslee has the right and the responsibility to track every citizen in Washington from here on based on the fact that this is an emergency in perpetuity. Good luck with that.

      1000 people have died as of today in Washington State, of covid19. That is 0.0001% of the total Wash State population. Only the ignorant believe in lock downs and what Inslee says, which he point-blank says will entail Jail time and Fines.
      The only people that should see jail time and fines are people like Inslee and Bill Gates, whom he caters to and gets his orders from.

      This is not right for 0.0001% of deaths for this disease. It wouldn’t be right even if it was 1%. If this wasn’t so disgusting and nazi-like, it would be laughable, especially when you see a younger person driving alone in their car with a mask on.

      “Anyone who has had contact with that person will be quarantined until they have tested negative, even if they have not tested positive or shown symptoms. ” Not sure if “Harmony” watched the same video or read the same article as us “Conspiracy Theorists”… but this is HORRIFIC! Yes this is way too much to ask to save lives. You shouldn’t have to ruin lives to save them.

    “Therefore, those individuals that refuse to cooperate with contact tracers and/or refuse testing, those individuals will not be allowed to leave their homes to purchase basic necessities such as groceries and/or prescriptions.”

    Tell me, honestly, what distinguishes this plan from the communist Chinese “Social Credits” scheme that curbs behavior by limiting access to life’s necessities? Do these little fascists in charge even HEAR themselves? Good lord.

    In the 1300s, the Italians began forcibly isolating plague victims in their homes and on ships, a practice known as “quaranta giorni”, or “space of forty days”, hence the word “quarantine”. When the bubonic plague hit Europe in the 1600s, the English would literally board up and chain shut any house where a single occupant showed symptoms (also a common practice in other European countries). The intent was to prevent the spread of the disease by locking in victims until the symptoms had passed, but the mechanism ensured that nearly everyone in the house or on the afflicted ship would catch it and die, as well. If not, they would likely have starved to death after weeks without food or water.

    Now Inslee is threatening to imprison people in their own homes without any kind of due process. If they refuse to have State-appointed gophers fetch their meds and food, then the final outcome is that Inslee will starve people or withhold their medications if they don’t acquiesce to his orders. For many old and infirm, this could be a death sentence, without having committed a crime, been tried by a jury of their peers, or having an opportunity for judicial review. The number of Constitutional violations are staggering, as are the number of state laws that he is pledging to violate. “False imprisonment” would be one. “Homicide” would be another, since these deaths would be caused by the actions of a person against another person.

    It is time for the residents of Washington, which sadly I no longer am, to begin circulating recall petitions. Inslee cannot be allowed to incarcerate, injure, or kill people without due process of law

      Best approach is to refuse testing and when they force you to stay in your home – get word out via your computer.

      It’s time to do what our forefathers said in the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence. What Mr. Inslee is doing is unconstitutional. This “plandemic” is being used against the governed. This “virus” is about money and power. Look at who stands to benefit the most. Too many nurses and doctors have posted videos that have gone viral. They state in some hospitals patients are being neglected and killed of things not related to “corona.” But, on the death certificate, they write “Covid-19” in order to increase the stats and pad certain entity’s pocketbooks. It’s time to act.

          I am sure that you had to dig deep in this comment section for a person who couldn’t articulate/spell very well. That last person was an exception to some very intelligent, rational, comments. Every concern that these people have is 100% legitimate and clearly stated. Your obviously biased reply shows that you couldn’t stand up to an open debate on this subject, which is basically our rights and freedoms at stake. Every government that turned totalitarian throughout history, controlled it’s citizens for the “greater good”. What we are seeing here is no different. These political spin doctors and paid health “experts” always have an agenda. To lie, deceive, control and lie some more.

      But the petition is poorly written and it does not cover how Inslee’s Contact Tracing and forced Quarantines are Unconstitutional. Inslee is getting a big hand out from Bill Gates, who appears to be the real dictator for Washington State at this point.

    If anyone can “finger” you as a “contact” (which has the potential to bind you under criminal prosecution) w/o you knowing who that person is, you are literally building the situation where citizens are MORE LIKELY to be suspicious and NOT COMPLY. DON’T DO THIS.

    If you want this to work, transparency is NECESSARY. People must know that the government they’ve elected is working for and not against them. If you want 100% participation, educate, and help people to understand how to best protect themselves and their families. Offer free, and widely available testing, provide free food delivery for the heroes that self-quarantine (through a volunteer workforce), make sure anyone in self-quarantine has the funds they need to get by for two-weeks, etc. There is so much you can creatively do to inspire a people to pull together and fight.

    Putting citizens on list and threatening them with criminal prosecution is what a state would do who can’t think harder and smarter than some ape dictator. DO BETTER. BE BETTER.

          I’ve no doubt that those who are “undesirable” – for example, Thought Criminals – will “test positive for COVID-19” and then be forcibly “quarantined” somewhere other than their home. That is, unless they resist by any means necessary. Folks that “go quietly” will either return “cured” of their “errors,” or they will “sadly succumb to COVID-19.”

    This is why the Democrats wanted to take over our entire health care system. If they control our health and health care then they control us…or so they would like it to be. And if we won’t go along with Climate Change like good little lemmings then, by all means, use Covid-19 as the next excuse.

    Thank God I live in a red state with like-minded majority of citizens. Not that they don’t try that down here but it surely takes a lot more effort for them to succeed.

    Arrest the Governor
    Here is the summary and wording of the relevant statute taken from DOJ’s own website:

    DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW

    SUMMARY

    Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.

    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim. The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.

    TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242

    Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

    Now let us look at the interesting background. The governor’s daughter, Emily, works for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. On top of that, the Governor’s former Chief of Staff, Mary Alice, is a key top person also in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

      Why would you bring up such disrespectful questions? Gov. Inslee has the data. Stay on the plantation and be a good boy. Democrats have a long and colorful history of taking good care of people and their Civil Rights. Just ask the thousands of blacks and whites that were lynched in the 1870’s for voting Republican. Oh, didn’t learn that one in school… funny thing. This is, after all, an emergency, and the Governor has invoked his Emergency Powers, so he has authority to strip any of your Civil Rights from you, if he thinks it is “reasonable” (RCW43.06.220.1.h). I know, you hotheads and rabble rousers will say things like “Tyranny” and “We have our Rights”, but it’s all about public health, and your Civil Rights don’t amount to much in Inslee’s data sets.
