Issaquah’s Closures

Following the new statewide restrictions, the following City facilities/programs will be closed starting Nov. 17:

  • Issaquah Community Center (including any reservations)

  • All indoor sports

Stay Safe This Holiday Season

As we plan for the holidays, we must be safe in how we celebrate. Gathering in groups — even with people we know — may spread COVID-19. The best option is simply to stay home, and only celebrate with those you live with.
