The COVID-19 (coronavirus) public health emergency is constantly evolving as more information is learned about it. Snohomish Health District is the city’s primary source for health updates and information regarding COVID-19. For more information about the COVID-19 virus and Washington State's response and regulations, please check www.coronavirus.wa.gov.
January 8, 2021 Update:
On January 5, Governor Jay Inslee announced “Healthy Washington — Roadmap to Recovery,” a COVID-19 phased recovery plan. Beginning on January 11, the state will follow a regional recovery approach with every region beginning in Phase 1.
A region’s phase will be determined by the Department of Health in response to four metric requirements. Phase 1, for the most part, aligns with restrictions current in place for most counties today, with a few key exceptions. Indoor fitness and outdoor entertainment, for example, were both previously prohibited, but will now be permitted with restrictions. To go forward from Phase 1 to Phase 2, regions must meet the metrics as described on the state’s “Roadmap to Recovery” webpage.
City Facilities Update:
During Governor Inslee’s Coronavirus orders, Interim City Hall, the Police Station and the Public Works Shop are closed to the public. The city will continue to process building and development permits, inspect essential construction activities, provide police services and maintain grounds and infrastructure.
At this time the Recreation Pavilion is open 5:45 a.m. to 6:15 p.m., with reservations and masks only (childcare is an exception). Park trails, the boat launch, fishing pier, off-leash dog park, tennis courts and basketball court are open, subject to gathering and social distancing requirements. To make a reservation or get more information, please call (425) 776-9173.
