In the spirit of constant vigilance around COVID-19, the town and county are holding a special meeting Thursday to figure out how to handle large events.
Two are coming up: the 44th Annual World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb, March 19-22, and the Jackson Hole Rendezvous, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s three-day music festival scheduled for the following weekend.
Teton County Board of County Commissioners Chair Natalia D. Macker said the meeting has been called so the town and county can think about options.
“Everybody is learning and evolving as we go, and trying to find the right path forward, be cognizant of ramifications of decisions and make sure everything is considered,” she said.
Macker said she expects representatives from the Teton County Health Department, St. John’s Health and Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce to attend, along with event organizers. County commissioners and town councilors plan to consider events through June, including the Jackson Hole Half Marathon and Touch-a-Truck.
“As a collective, we can make sure that Town and County agencies are as prepared as possible and are making appropriate decisions about large gatherings that are scheduled to occur,” Mayor Pete Muldoon wrote Wednesday in a letter to the community.
The meeting at 11 a.m. in the Town Council Chambers, 150 E. Pearl Ave., is open to the public and can be viewed online at TinyURL.com/townlivestreamjh.
