Just to clarify some items from this morning's news, where events of 250+ people have been prohibited in the Seattle area.

-- Junior Nationals is scheduled to be in Island County, WA, which is not one of the three counties currently in the ban (those would be King, Pierce and Snohomish counties).

-- The event ban currently goes through March 31, but it may be extended.

-- The ban is for events with 250+, and when I checked yesterday, there were 253 registrants, which does not include event staff and spectators.
