  1. Can I reach you from my landline? I am presently listening from that landline at 360-468-3335.

  2. Hello, Rick Larsen:

    The town Hall meeting just ended. I wasn’t able to ask my question, perhaps because I was on a landline?
    I was going to follow up on the concern expressed by Jan from Lopez Island concerning the many tourists from the mainland coming to the island in spite of San Juan County’s explicit rule against all non-essential travel. When I called the San Juan County Health Department, I was told that policing ferry travel to the island was the responsibility of the State. If so, what is being done to check travelers from Anacortes as tourists? Could there be an announcement on the electronic readerboard at the ferry landing announcing the travel ban? Could police walk down the line of folks waiting for the ferry to ask for their reasons to travel during the lockdown?

    Thank you very much.

    Henning Sehmsdorf, 83 years old, feeling vulnerable
