Coronavirus: Washington State Fishermen Stage ‘Let Us Fish’ Rally
A group of disgruntled fishermen gathered in Washington State on Sunday to protest the Governor’s stay at home order banning recreational fishing among other activities that violate social distancing, KIRO7 reported.
Dozens of boats gathered in Lake Union to protest the order effective until May 4, according to the report.
Washington, you have responded to the call to stay home. That means we should have more good news to share. But know this:
If we relax now, we risk undoing all the progress we’ve made together.
— Governor Jay Inslee (@GovInslee) April 9, 2020
Gov. Jay Inslee is expected to hold a news conference on Monday to provide an update on the State’s response to the virus.
There are currently 13,521 cases of the coronavirus in Washington and 749 people have died statewide from the virus.
