Community Update 20200424

Officials' regular COVID-19 community update is scheduled for 3 p.m. Friday. Town Hall will be closed to the public, but the meeting can be streamed live on the Town of Jackson's website, JacksonWY.gov. It will also be broadcast live on three local radio stations: KJAX (93.5 FM), KHOL (89.1 FM) and KMTN (96.9 FM).

The regular COVID-19 community update is returning at 3 p.m. Friday, when it will be live streamed from Town Hall.

This week, the usual cast of characters — representatives from St. John’s Health, the health department, unified command, elected bodies and the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce — will be joined by Community Foundation of Jackson Hole President Laurie Andrews.

The meeting will be held at the Jackson Town Hall, but it will not be open to in-person audiences in an effort to maintain physical distancing.

Instead, the public can livestream the updates from the Town of Jackson’s website, JacksonWY.gov, or listen to a live broadcast on three local radio stations: KJAX (93.5 FM), KHOL (89.1 FM) and KMTN (96.9 FM).

“We invite and encourage all members of the community to watch the meeting online,” town Public Information Officer Carl Pelletier wrote in a press release.

If you can’t watch the meeting live, you can watch it later. It will be archived at JHCOVID.com and on the Town of Jackson’s website.

“In Jackson, we know we are stronger together, and with our entire community practicing physical distancing we can protect the most vulnerable among us and reduce the spread of COVID-19,” Pelletier wrote. “As individuals, we can check in on our neighbors. Our community is working together for the best possible tomorrow.”
