July 1, 2020

"I have heard from many of you regarding the Freedom Protest on July 4th.

Just to clarify, the protest is NOT sponsored, endorsed or sanctioned by the City.

The City appreciates the willingness of the protest organizers to apprise the City of possible impacts.

The City continues to follow guidelines for the Phase 2 directives issued by Governor Inslee, and we encourage all citizens to do the same, which includes social distancing, the wearing of masks and washing of hands.

Thank you, for continuing to be patient, tolerant and diligent as we move through this unprecedented pandemic."

- Mayor Julia Johnson
