On March 30, Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order asking Arizonans to stay at home amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. However, over in Washington state, people have been living under a stay-at-home order for some time.

Washington’s Gov. Jay Inslee signed an order prohibiting residents from leaving their homes except for essential activities on March 23— a week before Ducey took a similar step here.

The Show spoke to Will Stone, a reporter from NPR and KNKX in Seattle, about what life in Washington state has looked like during the first week under the stay-at-home order.
