KIRO Radio’s Dave Ross and reporter Aaron Granillo discuss Monday’s announcement that the Washington State Corrections Department will release up to 950 non-violent offenders.

California, Oregon, and Washington’s governors agreed Monday they will unify their plan to reopen the economy on the West Coast. Could that happen earlier than nationwide recommendations? What will it take to reopen before a vaccine is available?

Boeing partially reopened manufacturing operations on Monday. How do they plan to keep workers safe … and do you have to go back to work if you don’t want to risk it?
