Washington State refused help from one county to clear snow because the county doesn't have a vaccine mandate but don't worry it's not like icy roads are more dangerous than Covid

Jan 13th

Monster snowstorms may have shut down a ton of U.S. roads last week, further exacerbating the supply chain crisis and leaving grocery store shelves bare across much of the country.

Thankfully, the state of Washington took the high road and protected its residents from the mortal threat of unvaccinated snowplow drivers riding around by themselves in their trucks:

The Washington State Department of Transportation denied help from one county to clean up a "freak winter storm" because it does not mandate employee vaccinations.

"Washington State informed Kittitas County they could not accept this assistance due to Kittitas County not mandating the COVID-19 vaccination for County employees. The Kittitas County Board of Commissioners is extremely disappointed with the States' position to refuse assistance," a press release from Kittitas County on Wednesday states...

The county offered assistance to the Washington State Department of Transportation to clean up state roads on Jan. 11 but was subsequently denied over lack of vaccine mandate.

After all, what do you think is the greater threat: Unplowed roads and the closure of critical infrastructure because of a major weather event, or...an unvaccinated guy plowing snow while alone in a municipal F-350?

Thankfully, the legislature had the foresight to order additional resources for the vaccinated portions of the state:

Hope the snow melts soon, Washington!
