Re: In response to the COVID-19 Virus Edmonds Senior Center will suspend all Programs and Activities effective Thursday March 5, 2020
Earlier today Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers declared a State of Emergency in the County in response to the COVID-19 virus. The Edmonds Senior Center has decided out of an abundance of caution to suspend all programs and activities until further notice effective Thursday March 5. The Everett Senior Center closed earlier today.
Seniors are one of the highest at-risk groups. In consideration of our priority for member safety we believe this is the appropriate response. One of the factors in our decision is that unlike every other Senior Center in the County we are spread over 14 different transition locations, and thus are not in control of maintenance and custodial operations.
We will monitor the situation continuously and keep you and the community informed. The administrative office will remain open and the Board and Committees will continue to function.

Snohomish County United in Response to COVID-19
SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – Out of an abundance of caution over the spread of COVID-19, Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers and City of Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin are declaring a State of Emergency for Snohomish County and the City of Everett, in coordination with Snohomish County’s Health Officer Dr. Chris Spitters, who has simultaneously declared a Public Health Emergency for the County.
Executive Somers, Dr. Spitters and Mayor Franklin will be available to answer media questions at a joint press conference at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Thursday, March 5) in the Public Meeting Rooms on the Snohomish County Campus.
“We know people are concerned, and this declaration will help us work together to keep people safe,” Executive Somers said. “These declarations formalize the work we’ve been doing together since the first COVID-19 coronavirus case was confirmed on January 21, 2020. Collaboration with all of our partners is what makes Snohomish County resilient. The public can be assured we are responding as quickly and decisively as possible.”
“These proclamations make it easier for us to continue to work with our partners as we use the best available medical strategies to keep our community safe and healthy,” said Dr. Spitters. “It also provides the flexibility needed to respond to this rapidly evolving issue.”
“The Board of Health will be convening to consider a resolution that formally authorizes the Snohomish Health District to use emergency reserves in this response,” said Stephanie Wright, chair for the Board of Health and Snohomish County councilmember. “We stand ready to support the staff and our partners in the efforts critically needed in the coming days and weeks.”
“We are working in collaboration with the County to ensure our residents are up-to-date on the situation,” said Mayor Franklin. “These are precautionary steps to ensure we have maximum flexibility as a community to respond. We ask our residents to take necessary steps to ensure their and their family’s health and safety.”
