A friend sent me an article about enforcement of the Governor's orders.
Inslee provides enforcement guidance on ‘Stay Home, Stay Healthy’ order.
"Governor Inslee has issued several orders including the Stay Home-Stay Healthy proclamation, 20-25, prohibiting people from leaving their home or place of residence except to conduct or participate in (1) essential activities, and/or (2) employment in providing essential business services."
If you have concerns and would like to report suspected violations of this order, the governor has provided a form. Fill it out that they will fast track a response to limit these violations that put neighbors at risk. My family submitted the following message which anyone may use if they'd like:
"The city of Camas, WA is just now breaking ground on a non-essential large infrastructure project in defiance of the Governor's Construction Guidance Order released just the other day. Local city officials are well aware of the Governor's Order and have specifically released a press release yesterday to attempt to frame the work as essential in defiance of it. In 18+ months of prior preliminary actions to try to get this project approved, the city has never once expressed urgency beyond this being an "improvement project". The city now claims that should this work not proceed, that our intersection will "soon reach failure" having never said that before yesterday. This intersection allows access for the major roadway through our town, should construction block that route, thousands will be left unable to evacuate efficiently during an escalation of current conditions or other emergency. Thank you for your swift attention on this as we are especially concerned for the health and safety of the workers that will be pressured into doing this work in defiance of both the governor's "stay home, stay healthy" proclamation and the "Construction Guidance" Proclamation. Thank you."
Please take 30 seconds to fill out the form and we help the city do the right thing here.
