Governor Inslee addressed the state and indicated an announcement of a ban on indoor dining. The ban will begin on Wednesday November 18 and last for a minimum of 4 weeks. That means that this temporary ban for restaurants, breweries, taverns and wineries could end by December 14.

The governor and his wife also encouraged state residents to modify their holiday plans. They shared that their Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays will be virtual celebrations this year. They encourage others to do the same unless those from outside the household have quarantined for 14 days.

A news conference scheduled for Sunday, November 15 will provide more details.
