What's New Today

Many of the military field hospitals are being redirected to New York, but we will likely still get a facility in Snohomish County. The County and others are working with federal contacts right now in reviewing locations.

Kid Activity Opportunity from the Mariners: "Schools may be closed right now, but learning is still important! We are excited to offer youngsters (and their caretakers!) a FREE engaging learning experience that uses the game of baseball. To register your child for Summer Slugger, simply visit and select "I Have A Code", and use code Mariners."

WSF continues to examine their ferry service. At this point, the Mukilteo/Clinton route has the second highest vehicle ridership, so WSF will not be reducing its number of vessels at this time. They will, however, be suspending the last daily roundtrip – 12.30am from Clinton and 1.05am from Mukilteo.

A Shared Poem from A Resident

The Corona Virus Mirror, by Judith Grace Hastings of Mukilteo

The world is looking at a Corona Virus mirror now
What we see is a reflection of what we allow

Do we ignore the potential harm of the virus as just a fable
Or do we take prudent precautions as we are able

Do we act only for ourselves with selfish greed
Or do we respectfully care about others in need

Do we panic, go to the stores, and horde all we can
Or do we buy only what we need, because we understand

Will we resent when stores and businesses act with cautious care
Or will we finally see the essential workers who were always there

Will we let our lives overrun with anger, panic and fear
Or will we lovingly embrace all that we hold dear

Will we close ourselves off, thinking we can’t possibly help in any way
Or will we reach out and do what we are able, each and every day

Take a long look in that Corona Virus mirror, just what does it show
Is it reflecting who you really are, is it someone you want to know

Does it show someone acting out in anger and fear, unable to bend
Or will we see someone who takes as this as an opportunity to rest and mend

Will we be able to look away from our Corona Virus mirror long enough to see
We are not alone in this, we never have been and we will never be

So, take a look in your mirror, see what is there for you to learn and grow
Then look away, reach out to others and let compassion and love flow
