COVID-19 Community Resource Center

Public Statement: Mask Mandate
The City of Mill Creek places employees and the public's safety as its highest priority. Therefore, our COVID-19 protocols will remain in effect after Gov. Jay Inslee's March 11 deadline passes. We will continue to require masks inside City buildings, social distancing, and hand sanitizing. In addition, City services will continue to operate by appointment only, including Passport Services, until more is known about how these changes will impact our community. The City eagerly looks forward to the day we can safely remove our masks inside City buildings.

Please email [email protected] with questions.


An excerpt from Gov. Jay Inslee’s Statement on Feb. 28, 2022 

“We’ve continued to monitor data from our state Department of Health, and have determined we are able to adjust the timing of our statewide mask requirement. While this represents another step forward for Washingtonians, we must still be mindful that many within our communities remain vulnerable. Many businesses and families will continue choosing to wear masks, because we’ve learned how effective they are at keeping one another safe. As we transition to this next phase, we will continue to move forward together carefully and cautiously.”
