Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson has declared a State of Emergency for the city amid the COVID-19 scare.
The emergency declaration, however, facilitates potential future assistance related to COVID-19. There is no immediate request, as there have not been any confirmed cases of the Coronavirus as of Thursday.
The assistance allows the city to gain regional and state resources if needed.
Pullman also opened an Emergency Operations Center at the Pullman Police Department. The center will manage emergency-related information and resources if it becomes necessary.
Major Johnson is urging Pullman residents to continue to support local businesses.
