CITY OF PULLMAN DECLARES AN EMERGENCY AMID COVID-19 IMPACT

 

PULLMAN – Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson has declared a State of Emergency for the City of Pullman, effective today. The emergency declaration facilitates potential future assistance related to COVID-19, including business assistance from the Small Business Administration (SBA), as well as access to regional and State resources. This declaration is a means to ensure all necessary resources will be available if needed. In conjunction with the emergency declaration, the City of Pullman opened an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at the Pullman Police Department. The EOC will manage emergency related information and resources as needed.

 

Mayor Johnson urges Pullman residents to continue to support our local businesses. This support is critical to maintaining our local economy, and he knows that our local businesses have instituted additional measures to protect employees’ and consumers’ health. The City of Pullman will help connect businesses to loans as they become available from the SBA.
