What we’re doing 

The health and safety of our community is our top concern, and we are doing our part to help contain the spread of this COVID-19. We are making daily assessments based on Public Health’s guidance, and we will do our best to communicate any changes in our operations as quickly as possible. In accordance with guidance from Snohomish County Public Health and the Washington Department of Health regarding COVID-19, these steps are being taken to better enforce social distancing and ensure all appropriate steps are being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
