Washington Gov. Jay Inslee met today with WSU and Pullman community leaders to discuss continuing efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Hosted by WSU President Kirk Schulz, participants included Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson and Whitman County Public Health Director Troy Henderson. They were joined by healthcare, business and student leaders representing various organizations from the Pullman campus. All wore face coverings and took appropriate precautions such as attesting to their health prior to the event, which was held in the CUB Senior Ballroom to allow for proper physical distancing.

“We appreciate Gov. Inslee’s support and interest in learning more about our ongoing efforts to protect the well-being of not only the WSU community but of the entire Palouse-area community as well,” Schulz said. “The steps we’re taking and the strong partnerships we’ve forged over the past several months at the local, state and federal levels are critical to our overall success in helping contain this global pandemic.”
