MCCA – COVID-19 Precautions Update

Yesterday Governor Inslee urged us to continue to take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. At MCCA, we are working to do our part. Following the lead of Snohomish County and the City of Everett, we have closed the parking lot for Chopper Park. Traffic in the Chopper Park parking lot has increased dramatically since other area parks closed earlier this week. To ensure that our residents can walk our trails and maintain safe social distancing practices, we will keep the Chopper Park parking lot closed until further notice.

The beautiful weather has brought many of our residents outside. Please continue to practice good hygiene and maintain a safe social distance from other residents and MCCA staff. Maintenance staff has noticed an increase in trash, such as used tissues and pet waste bags, left on the sides of our trails and sidewalks. Please use the trash receptacles we have located at various places along our sidewalks and trails to dispose of trash. We need your help to keep MCCA beautiful and safe for all.

All our area kids are now out of school. Please remember to follow the rules posted in our parks and playgrounds. All MCCA parks are closed at sunset. We are following the lead of the City of Mill Creek and reminding you that it is the responsibility of those who visit our parks to sanitize playground equipment before and after each use. MCCA staff will not be sanitizing playground equipment.

The MCCA Office has a list of volunteers ready to help deliver necessities to our at-risk residents, who are following the advice of the CDC, and sheltering in place. If you would like to be added to the list of volunteers, or if you would like to be added to the list of residents who would like a “check-in” call from MCCA staff, please contact us (425-316-3344 or info@mcca.info).

I am thankful for the MCCA staff who still come to work to ensure that we can meet the needs of our residents. We thank our volunteers and residents for their patience as many of our events and meetings are cancelled or postponed and project timelines are stretched as we work to maintain our office and maintenance routines as much as we can. While I encourage our residents to continue to follow the guidelines for reduced social interaction set forward by our Governor, “social distancing” does not mean social disengagement. Please continue to reach out to your neighbors, your family and our office via phone or email.

Sincerely,

Hilary Bublitz
