Coronavirus Updates

The City of Lynn is telling residents that they need to be in their houses at night, unless they have essential COVID-19 business.

Mayor Thomas McGee issued an executive order that all residents and visitors inside the city limits, must remain indoors from 9pm until 6am the following morning, unless they are “actively providing or receiving COVID-19 essential services.”

“As the outbreak of COVID-19 through person to person transmission continues to significantly affect the way of life and health of our community here in Lynn, we must take additional steps to prepare for, respond to, and mitigate the spread to protect the health and welfare of all us,” said McGee.

“By taking these measures now, we get closer and closer to a time where we can all be together again. This requires patience and discipline as we all work together as one Lynn. I am confident that we will get through this crisis by standing firm, and emerge stronger than ever.”

Both orders are effective as of Sunday, April 12th. Failure to comply could result in the suspension/revocation of any and all City of Lynn licenses and permits and fines of up to $1,000.
