The City of Tumwater continues to monitor the latest information about COVID-19 from the Thurston County Health Department, Washington State Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We ask community members to stay informed, calm and vigilant to keep you, your loved ones and our communities safe.

Stay Home, Stay Healthy

Residents across Washington state must stay home unless they need to pursue an essential activity, under the "Stay at Home, Stay Healthy" order issued by Governor Jay Inslee. Grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, food supply chains and other things necessary for continued operations will remain open. Here's some of the things that are allowed under the order.

  • Pursuing an essential activity, like shopping for groceries or going to a medical appointment.
  • Getting takeout food, curbside pick up and food deliveries also are allowed.
  • Going to work at an essential business.
  • Going outside for walks and exercise, as long as social distancing of 6 feet is maintained.

Find out what's open and closed and learn more about what it means to stay home.
