  1. The Edmonds’ suggestions (Snohomish?) for social distancing in open air locations is confusing to me. We’re not supposed to drive to parks (uncrowded local Edmonds parks) to walk our dogs (even if we have physical challenges making it impossible to walk to the nearest park) or, to just plain walk in the park for exercise. But, we can drive to Sunset Hill and walk along the sidewalk while keeping social distancing in a more crowded location? I want to respect the rules to keep us safe but I’ve seen on other social media sites that other people are also confused.
    Please enlighten us to how all this works?
    Thank you!

    1. Not sure where Sunset Hill is, this is Sunset Ave..

      It’s pretty simple. Stay home. Walk in your neighborhood, not a park. Stay at least 6 feet apart when you are out walking.

      I will echo what others have said in this thread. Let’s all follow the guidelines, and be kind to one another.

  2. What I don’t understand is why people are allowed to park where ever they want when the parking spots are full. Seems a little dangerous.

  3. The article is about the success of social distancing.
    I walk most of the open walkways and paths in Edmonds.
    I have noticed that the great majority of people are practicing social distancing while still being refreshingly kind and outgoing towards one another.
    This includes Sunset!
    I applaud my fellow citizens for applying respect and kindness to one another during this difficult time.
    It makes me happy to be outside, it also makes me happy and very proud to see our citizens outside, enjoying a break from home, and doing it while following safe guidelines.
    We can all use a break, let’s remember to give one to each other as well.

    1. Pat, I agree. It makes me happy to see the water, ferry, beach and mountains. People were practicing safe distancing and still enjoying the fresh air and views from Sunset Ave. Let’s be kind to one another and enjoy the view.

  4. I agree with Pat McKee -most people I’ve met in the store and walking are very considerate and are treating this as serious, yet being kind and considerate of their fellow human beings.. Thank you fellow human beings! Today at OFC the employees are wiping down the carts and we had an interesting variety of medical and home made masks! Thank you fellow Edmonds residents!

  5. I drove on Sunset on Tuesday at 4;30 pm but it was way to crowded so drove back home and walked my dog in my neighborhood. Much better distancing there!
