Greetings Community Transit Colleagues,

We continue to monitor COVID-19-related metrics across Snohomish County and the state, including vaccination rates. The encouraging news is COVID-19 case counts appear to be flattening and the number of people vaccinated continues to climb. Combined, this data indicates we’ve entered a period of stabilization over the last few days.
