- Editor’s note: I have been calling for a public Town Hall or address from Mayor Foster for quite some time. The time has come and this April 8th forum is very important from our community’s leaders, with so many people and their businesses under duress.
“Today [April 2] 4 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed by the Health Department – totaling 55 in Thurston County – and the Governor extended his “Stay at Home” order for another month through May 4th. There are still lots of questions about when and if schools will re-open which the Governor did not touch in today.
“We are all in this together and Mayor JW Foster, Superintendent of Yelm Community Schools Brian Wharton, and Yelm Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Line Critchfield will host a Virtual-Town-Hall next Wednesday (details to follow). Together, they will provide an update on city services and resources for children, families, and businesses.
“Meanwhile, stay tuned and stay healthy! Keep supporting local businesses with to-go orders, get outside and enjoy the outdoors, plug into the unemployment and business loan resources linked on our website, and learn answers to frequently answered questions at: https://www.thurstoncountywa.gov/phss/Pages/coronavirus.aspx ”
