Governor Jay Inslee said on Thursday that all public and private K-12 schools in King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties will close until April 24.

“We do not take these decisions lightly and I am fully aware of the various impacts this has on families and communities,” Inslee said during a press conference in Olympia. “Today’s decision has a full range of implications from learning plans and childcare, to free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch, just to name a few.

“I anticipate this will cause ripple effects throughout our state. But we can’t afford not to do it. We must ensure that we slow the spread of this virus.”
