From Mayor Jennifer Gregerson: Governor Jay Inslee signed Proclamation 20-25.3 and outlined a “Safe Start” plan, a phased approach to re-open Washington’s economy. Under the plan, busineses and activities will re-open in phases with adequate social distancing measures & health standards in place. Businesses may also need to meet additional requirements developed specifically for their industry.

All state reopening guidelines can be found here.

Snohomish County is currently in Phase 1, although counties with a population of less than 75,000 that have not identified a resident with COVID-19 the three most consecutive weeks may request an exemption from specific aspects of the Safe Start phasing plan. It is anticipated that Snohomish County could move to Phase 2 by June 22 if the number of COVID cases decreases.

If this timeline still feels like forever, your feelings are valid. Here’s a public health article about that frustration and this challenge.

Keep up the Social Distancing:  A King County disease modeling study shows that reopening too quickly would result in a higher case count peak by the end of May than we had in March, so physical distancing in our area is still really important.  This article from King County Public Health is a good reminder about why it’s important to keep it up. Not seeing friends and family is hard, but it’s worth it. The Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Health order has been extended through May 31.

We opened some of our parks on May 5. Mukilteo will continue to stick to the guidelines of the Governor’s order, and will continue to educate the public on the issue. If you are concerned about violations, please email cv19violations@mukilteowa.gov to notify us for enforcement/education.
