Its CENSUS Time!
Please remember to wash your hands...and fill out the census! Do your part: prevent the spread of germs but “spread” the word about the census. The census determines funding for life-saving services such as medical clinics, emergency response and more. Answer the census at www.2020census.gov. #2020census #shapeyourfuture
Neighborhood meetings are going virtual
In order to ensure social distancing to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, leaders in neighborhood groups are working to host meetings in new ways. In person meetings have been cancelled for the time being. Some groups are using social media to stay connected and share information, such as Facebook-live, Zoom or postings on social media. Contact your neighborhood group to find out if they are hosting a virtual meeting. We encourage you to check in with your neighbors, stay in contact using social media, phone calls and email to support each other.
You can find more information on COVID-19 coronavirus at websites for the Snohomish Health District https://www.snohd.org/484/Novel-Coronavirus-2019 and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html .
