COVID-19 Update


Lynnwood Convention Center

UPDATED: May 24, 2021

At the Lynnwood Convention Center the health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority. We are closely following the reports regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and making adjustments to our services and protocols accordingly.

Effective May 19, 2021, Governor Inslee issued updated guidance. Convention Centers and other event venues in the Puget Sound region are permitted to operate within Phase 3 Guidelines. Events are permitted at 50% occupancy or 1,000 people, whichever is less.
  • Total indoor capacity can exceed 50% if using vaccinated sections/areas (speak to your Sales or Event Manager for details).
  • Occupancy restrictions and physical distancing requirements are removed if all attendees are vaccinated.
  • For areas/sections with unvaccinated attendees, six feet of physical distance must be maintained between individuals/groups/table.
The Lynnwood Convention Center is a public venue where multiple groups and the public can assemble simultaneously. As such, to ensure the utmost in health and safety precautions, masks are still required in all public and shared areas of the venue including lobbies, hallways and restrooms, regardless of individuals' vaccine status.

The Lynnwood Convention Center is proud to be a member of VenueShield and has also received GBAC STARâ„¢ facility accreditation. Over the past several months our team has been diligently working to ensure we are ready for reopening; updating our cleaning procedures, installing sneeze guards and linen-less classroom tables, increasing airflow through our HVAC system and updating menus and food service to name a few changes.
