Providing Essential Services for our Community

Message from Mayor Pete Kmet
kmetTonight I am urging residents and businesses in Tumwater to comply with Governor Jay Inslee’s order and “Stay Home, Stay healthy.” To slow the spread of COVID-19 and help limit exposure to more vulnerable people, the State is requiring people to minimize opportunities for contact with someone who may have the virus. The best way to slow the spread of the disease is to drastically reduce interactions between people by increasing social distancing. It is critical that each of us do all that we can to self-isolate and it starts with staying home.


Updated March 27, 2020; 2:00 p.m.

Tumwater City Hall and all City facilities will be closed to the public until further notice.

We are committed to maintaining essential services for our community during this declared public health emergency – police, fire, public works, and utility services. We are moving quickly to promote and enable social distancing while continuing to support our staff, serve our community, and operate effectively. According to the CDC and the Department of Health, this is critical to slow down the outbreak, to reduce the chance of infection among high-risk populations, and to reduce the burden on health care systems and workers, which includes our own emergency medical employees.
