statewide to preserve the publics well-being, and to save lives. These were very difficult decisions that have very
real consequences to peoples livelihoods. I recognize that and dont take those impacts lightly, but we must act now
and act quickly to slow the spread of this disease.

proclamation is unreasonable, overly broad, or unequally applied...It is not the Courts role to second-guess the

Slidewaters, a water park in Chelan County that has remained open in violation of state law, filed suit against
Gov. Jay Inslee and the Department of Labor & Industries on June 8. The judge previously rejected the water parks motion
for a temporary restraining order against state enforcement of the emergency proclamations. Judge Rice remanded the states
counter claims against the water park to Chelan County Superior Court, where the state is seeking a declaratory judgment
that Slidewaters conduct violates the governors proclamation and an order enjoining them from operating. The state is also
seeking to recoup costs and attorney fees. I would like to thank the Attorney Generals Office for all of their work on this
case, Inslee said. This unequivocal ruling on the merits was made possible by their efforts. Read the judges full order here.

While Congress passed a law to ensure no one would avoid getting tested for the coronavirus because of the cost, experts
say loopholes and mix-ups have left some people with big bills to pay. People returning to their jobs also could wind up
having to pay for COVID-19 tests, they warned. People should know, first and foremost, that if they get a COVID test,
they should not pay for that test and they should not pay for the visit. If they do get a bill for even the test with the visit,
they need to call their insurer and contest the bill.

The situation in eastern Washington is of greatest concern, particularly in Benton, Franklin, Spokane and Yakima counties.
The report estimates cases and deaths in these counties will soon increase substantially if COVID-19 continues to spread at
current levels. By population, these counties are in a comparable position to King County at its peak in March. They may
require similar efforts to expand hospital capacity and testing, protect the people at highest risk and increase physical distancing.
While case counts had been trending flat in western Washington, small increases are now being observed. State and local officials
will continue to monitor the region carefully to determine whether the slight increase in COVID-19 transmission shown in the report
continues to grow. Report findings include possible transmission increases over Memorial Day weekend, but would not include
increases that may have occurred following recent protests. Every single person in our state can and must do their part to help
by following public health recommendations.

The coronavirus pandemic has fueled a sharp increase in bicycle sales locally and beyond as families seek a new way

By the end of April, many distributors had sold out of low-end consumer bikes. The country is now facing a severe bicycle
shortage as global supply chains in China and elsewhere in Asia, disrupted by the pandemic, scramble to meet the surge in
demand. Bicycles are the new toilet paper shortage, Sirois said, adding that he has an ample supply. People are buying all

In an update to its strategic advice to Governments, issued overnight on Tuesday, the UN health agency maintained
that without additional measures including greater support for health systems, the premature lifting of physical distancing
measures is likely to lead to an uncontrolled resurgence in COVID-19 transmission and an amplified second wave of cases.
On Tuesday, WHO repeated its recommendation that all countries should pursue more aggressive tactics against the disease.
Since the new coronavirus emerged in central China in December, latest data from the WHO indicates more than 1.8 million
cases and over 117,000 confirmed deaths, with 213 countries, areas or territories reporting infections.
Gene`s BMX Notes: - The UN-WHO Knows There Stuff When It Comes To COVID-19. They Specialize In The Worlds Health.
American Politicians Do Not Specialize In World Health. They Are Not Scientist, Physicians, Doctors Like The WHO Is. Come On
People, Please, This Is Not Just The USA, This Is A Fight For The Worlds Survival, Work Together! So We Do Not Have A Second
Wave Of This COVID-19. -- Stay Home And Live! -Or- Go Out And Die!, = It Is Your Choice. -- Geneb. Gene`s BMX

News Quote From Gene`s BMX -- 03/18/2020
is hardly anything in life that is not changing, some changes we like, while others create fear and anxiety.
Everywhere in the world right now there is a feeling of insecurity. What will happen to us all tomorrow, or
what will happen to the BMX sport, are questions we keep frequently asking.
One thing, however, is clear. It is no more possible to live in the ways we all have been living so far. It seems
that now the entire ways of life will have to be changed. Life will have to be redesigned. The life of the individual,
the social structure, and governance-all will have to be replanned. A new change, which looks very much like to be
scarry today. But, the world and life as we all know of it, has now changed. --- Stay Safe Everone, Gene`s BMX.

* Seattle Golf and Bike Show At The CenturyLink Events Center Cut Short.
Ive been in business 34 years, Ive never had anything like this, he added. He runs the annual Seattle Golf
and Bike Show in the CenturyLink Events Center. He says theres a noticeably smaller crowd here this year.

Since announcing the first case of 2019 novel coronavirus in Washington, several local and state agencies continue
to work on a multi-faceted public health response. While the risk to the public remains low, epidemiologists at the
county, state and federal levels are hard at work on a contact investigation to identify, notify, and monitor those who
came into close contact with the patient who tested positive for 2019 n-CoV. The current number of close contacts
stands at 50. This is the number of close contacts being actively monitored in Washington state.
There are steps people can take to reduce their risk of getting any viral respiratory infections. These include:
* Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
* Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
* Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw tissue in trash and wash your hands.
* Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.
It is also important for people to stay at home away from others if they are sick.
01-21-2020:- * Auburn Examiner:- Washington State Location Of First US Case Of Coronavirus.
The Washington Department of Public Health and CDC have confirmed a resident of Snohomish County, Washington
State USA has been diagnosed with the Coronavirus. The male individual returned home from China on Wednesday,
January 15th 2020 through SeaTac airport. Public health officials confirm the man began to feel ill on January 16th.
He was seen by medical professionals on January 19th. Clinic staff advised him to remain home as to not get anyone
else sick. The CDC in Atlanta confirmed today, via submitted samples, the man has Coronavirus. The patient is now
being observed at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. He is working closely with public health officials to
identify anyone he may have come in contact with. The patient, a man in his 30s, is the first person known to be
infected with 2019-nCoV in the United States. The outbreak in Wuhan, China was originally linked to a large seafood
and animal market, suggesting a possible zoonotic origin to the outbreak. Human to human spread has been confirmed.
How easily or sustainably this virus is spreading remains unknown. -- CC: Washington State Department of Health PR.

And Then Find A Permanent Vaccine For This Coronavirus As Soon As We All Understand Where It Comes From.
Here Is What Is And Has Been Found So Fare:
BusinessInsider.com:- * Both The New Coronavirus And Sars Outbreaks Likely Started In Chinese Wet Markets.
Quote:- The novel coronavirus and the Sars outbreak of 2003 have two things in common: Both are from the coronavirus family,
and both have been associated with animals commonly sold in wet markets. In the case of Sars and the new coronavirus disease,
called COVID-19, bats were the original hosts. The bats then infected other animals, which transmitted the disease to humans.
BusinessInsider.com:- * The Genetic Code Of The Wuhan Coronavirus Suggests A Potential Way To Neutralize The Virus.
Quote:- Many coronaviruses are zoonotic diseases, meaning they can spread to people from animals. In the case of Sars
and the new coronavirus (officially named 2019-nCoV), bats were the original hosts. They then infected other animals via
their poop or saliva, and the unwitting intermediaries transmitted the virus to humans. The only way to be sure about where
the virus came from, is to take DNA samples from animals sold at the Huanan wet market and from bats in the area.
A Back-Up To BusinessInsider.com Via WHO.int:- * Reducing Animal-Human Transmission Of Emerging Pathogens.
As soon as the first cases of COVID-19 were reported in late December 2019, investigations were conducted to understand
the epidemiology of COVID-19 and the original source of the outbreak. A large proportion of the initial cases in late December
2019 and early January 2020 had a direct link to the Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market in Wuhan City, where seafood, wild,
and farmed animal species were sold. Many of the initial patients were either stall owners, market employees, or regular visitors
to this market. --- Environmental samples taken from this market in December 2019 tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, further
suggesting tha the market in Wuhan City was the source of this outbreak or played a role in the initial amplification of the out
break. The market was closed on 1 January 2020 and was cleaned and disinfected. The virus could have been introduced into
the human population from an animal source in the market or an infected human could have introduced the virus to the market
and the virus may have then been amplified in the market environment. --- The virus which causes COVID-19 most probably
has its ecological reservoir in bats, and transmission of the virus to humans has likely occurred through an intermediate animal
host – a domestic animal, a wild animal or a domesticated wild animal which has not yet been identified. While the zoonotic
source of the virus is currently unknown.
A number of investigations in the area believed to be the source of the outbreak in China are currently underway or planned.
These include investigations of human cases with symptom onset in and around Wuhan in late 2019, environmental sampling
from markets and farms in areas where the first human cases were identified, and detailed records on the source and type of
wildlife species and farmed animals sold in these markets. Until the source of this virus is identified and controlled, there is a risk
of reintroduction of the virus into the human population and the risk of new outbreaks like the ones we are currently experiencing.
WHO continues to collaborate with experts, Member States, and other partners to identify gaps and research for the COVID-19.

* All available evidence for COVID-19 suggests that SARS-CoV-2 has a zoonotic source. Many researchers have been able to
look at the genomic features of SARS-CoV-2 and have found that evidence does not support that SARS-CoV-2 is a laboratory
construct. A constructed virus would show a mix of known elements within genomic sequences – this is not the case. - please see

07-07-2020:- WHO.int:- * WHO Experts To Travel To China
WHO experts will travel to China to work together with their Chinese counterparts to prepare scientific plans for identifying
the zoonotic source of the SARS-COV-2 virus. The experts will develop the scope and TOR for a WHO-led international mission.
Identifying the origin of emerging viral disease has proven complex in past epidemics in different countries. A well planned
series of scientific researches will advance the understanding of animal reservoirs and the route of transmission to humans.
The process is an evolving endeavor which may lead to further international scientific research and collaboration globally.
