An urgent request from our member Beth Hartman: We are in desperate need of nurses and nurse aides [at the Columbia Lutheran Home]. They have released the regulations so even those who are retired can be working. We also need housekeepers, laundry workers, maintenance and kitchen help. If you know someone out of work right now they could start right away. We could use disposable or washable gowns (we have found that washable choir robes are perfect with elastic at the wrists) and masks but also cards and letters for our Residents. We also have some sewing projects if you know someone who sews. Things can be sent to me via email at bethhartman@columbialutheranhome.org or by mailBeth HartmanColumbia Lutheran Home4700 Phinney Ave NSeattle, WA 98103 ... See MoreSee Less

The Collins family treats their employees with as much love and care as they do their trees. They use seaweed, fish oils, and organic insecticide to keep their fruit, farmland, and perhaps most importantly, their employees healthy and thriving. This time of year, 100% of income for Collins Family Orchards comes from farmers markets. Like many farms in our market community, Colins now struggles to pay for day to day operations on their farm and care for their employees.

WDFW closes recreational fisheries statewide in wake of governor’s order to ‘Stay Home, Stay Healthy’ in response to COVID-19

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) today announced its decision to temporarily close recreational fishing and shellfishing statewide in the wake of Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s order directing Washingtonians to stay home and stay healthy to limit the spread of coronavirus/COVID-19.

The closures will begin at midnight Wednesday, March 25 and last until at least 5 p.m. on April 8, 2020. WDFW will re-evaluate on April 6 whether the closure may need to be extended.

“This is not a decision we take lightly, but it’s the right thing to do for the health and well-being of Washington’s families,” said WDFW Director Kelly Susewind. “Monday’s extraordinary order for the residents of our state to stay home requires all of us to work together to ensure these measures have the intended effect.”

Fishery managers have reported that some anglers have been seen crowding banks as concerns over coronavirus have continued.

“We’ve seen an uptick in outdoor recreation at some locations in recent weeks as people have looked for ways to get outside,” said WDFW Fish Program Director Kelly Cunningham. “We’ve had reports of crowded boat ramps and busy fishing on some rivers, which runs counter to the governor’s direction to stay home and practice social distancing.”

In addition, many salmon and steelhead fisheries require regular monitoring under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), which includes conducting angler interviews at access sites surrounding the state’s marine waters. The on-site, face-to-face nature of angler interviews puts people at potential risk of transmitting the coronavirus.

Without such monitoring, these recreational fisheries must close to ensure ESA protections.

WDFW and other state agencies previously closed all of their water access sites, including boat launches, and other public lands where people may gather. Local and tribal governments are taking similar actions across Washington.

WDFW Enforcement officers remain on duty and will be enforcing these new closures.

The lowland lakes opening day for trout remains scheduled for April 25, but will be evaluated depending on whether the governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order might be further extended.

For the latest updates on WDFW’s coronavirus response, please visit https://wdfw.wa.gov/about/covid-19-updates.

Updates to openings and closures will be posted to that page. For the latest information on the statewide response to this pandemic, visit https://coronavirus.wa.gov/.

Join our new Fabric Face Mask Production Project! Face masks are in short supply, even for first responders and medical staff.
