SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Colorado Governor Jared Polis and Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced their states are joining California, Oregon, and Washington in the Western States Pact.

The pact is a group of western state governors that share a vision for modifying stay-at-home orders and fighting the coronavirus.

“COVID-19 doesn’t follow state or national boundaries, and it will take every level of government, working together to get the upper hand on this virus,” Governor Gavin Newsom said.

Gov. Newsom, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee recently announced they would be working together under a shared vision for gradually modifying their states’ stay at home orders and fighting COVID-19.

They listed three shared principles as foundational to the agreement:

First, residents’ health comes first. As home to nearly one in five Americans and gateway to the rest of the world, the West Coast has an outsized stake in controlling and ultimately defeating COVID-19, said Gov. Newsom.

Secondly, health outcomes and science – not politics – will guide the governors' decisions. Modifications to their states’ stay-at-home orders must be made based off their understanding of the total health impacts of COVID-19.

Thirdly, the states will only be effective by working together, the governors said in a press release. Each state is set to work with its local leaders and communities within its borders to understand what’s happening on the ground and adhere to our agreed-upon approach.
