UPDATE (March 24, 2020)

The City of Burlington on March 24, 2020 has closed its offices until further notice to adjust for COVID-19 measures in accordance with recommendations from federal, state and local agencies. Employees have been furloughed with the exception of those deemed most critical, such as Burlington’s police and fire forces.

We realize the impact to you from these extreme measures will be significant. It is our great hope that these measures will result in drastically slowing the spread of the COVID-19 crisis and less damage to the economy overall.

With Burlington City Hall closed until further notice, please refer to current information on specific city services.

Message from Burlington Mayor Steve Sexton (March 17, 2020)

The City of Burlington is committed to doing its part to limit the depth and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, the city has altered its hours of operation and access to many city facilities.

I understand that for many of us, this means interruptions and upset to our daily lives. But if we can assist in shortening the timeline of the pandemic, it is the right thing for us to do.

As the arc of this unprecedented event evolves, city services may also. But please keep in mind… the health and safety of citizens, staff and first responders is our top priority. 

As more information becomes available regarding the City of Burlington, we will share it out as quickly as we can. Skagit County Public Health is a primary source of information for COVID-19. Please reference their website for the latest information on COVID-19 in Skagit County.

I appreciate your patience and understanding.

Steve Sexton
