Confused about what’s open, closed? Here’s a summary

SEATTLE — After Gov. Jay Inslee announced an order on Monday that caused the statewide closures of restaurants, bars, entertainment and recreation facilities, some people are confused about what’s open and closed.

Inslee also lowered the number of people allowed to gather from 250 to less than 50. This has caused confusion about what kinds of gatherings have been banned.

To help clear up the confusion, the Washington State Department of Emergency Management tweeted a ‘social distancing summary.'
