The Kittitas County Incident Management Team (IMT) would like to show our support for the Ellensburg Rodeo Board who were tasked with the difficult decision to cancel the rodeo events for 2020. We know that there were extensive efforts to try to keep the rodeo events feasible and safe for our county this year, and with current state restrictions it is not feasible at this time.

Our support not only goes to the Ellensburg Rodeo Board, but to the rest of Kittitas County.  We know that this news will cause many emotions for our residents today.  Please take care of yourself and your family as you cope with this news.  Remember to cope in positive ways: take care of your body, find activities you enjoy, connect with the people you know and love, and ask for help if you need it.

If you have questions about your health, please contact your healthcare provider or you can call the Temporary COVID Clinic at KVH at 509-933-8850.  If you are having a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the Emergency Department at KVH.  If you have general questions about COVID-19, please call the EOC at 509-933-8315 or 509-933-8305.
