Current Status of COVID-19 Closures
As the City of Redmond continues to monitor the local Coronavirus situation, and on recommendation of King County Public Health, the decision has been made to close all city facilities, including City Hall and the Bytes Cafe Senior Lounge, and cancel all activities, appointments, trips and events through April 30, 2020.
