 Rep. Lekanoff is fighting for the rights and safety for all those that call the 40th LD home. She is bringing her voice to the local, state, and national levels to ensure that our communities are protected.

Rep. Lekanoff COVID-19 Statements

As the world continues to grapple with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it is up to each of us to do our part to keep ourselves, our families, and our communities safe. 

Governor Jay Inslee issued an Executive Order on February 29, 2020, temporarily closing all non-essential businesses, and encouraging individuals to shelter in place. Though the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” Order has been effective in slowing the spread of COVID-19, we must maintain social distancing practices for the foreseeable future.
