City of Lynnwood Update: Coronavirus Resources

Dear Lynnwood,

We want to thank you for all of your efforts to stay home, and stay healthy - helping to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The good news is that social distancing is working, but we can't stop now. We need to continue to do our part by limiting our time outside of our homes and practicing good social distancing.

We are calling on all Lynnwoodians to continue to stay home and limit your contact with those outside of your household. Only leave your home for essential trips such as getting groceries, seeking medical services, and essential work. 

We got this Lynnwood!

Stay home
