There are currently numerous closures, cancellations, and other restrictions on events, gatherings, and visitor-related services in place throughout Washington state, including Snohomish County, in an effort to help minimize the risk of exposure to and reduce the spread of COVID-19. As a result, all non-essential travel to and within Seattle NorthCountry is not encouraged at this time, particularly among high-risk individuals. Washington Governor Jay Inslee’s “Stay Home – Stay Healthy” Proclamation 20-25, dated March 23, 2020, provides additional details about restrictions on newly implemented restrictions in Washington. Additional information regarding COVID-19 in Snohomish County can be found on the Health District’s Novel Coronavirus 2019 page.
Seattle NorthCountry, in conjunction with Snohomish County Parks, Recreation & Tourism, continues to closely monitor the situation as it evolves. We are committed to ensuring the safety of all our residents and visitors, and will continue to implement best practices as recommended or mandated by the State of Washington, Snohomish County Health District, as well as regional, state, national, and international health organizations as it pertains specifically to COVID-19.
