Kittitas County, WA – 04/20/2020 – The Kittitas County Incident Management Team (IMT) showed appreciation toward partner agencies and elected officials for continuing to work together to respond to COVID-19. “Kittitas County is unique, because we do work so well together,” states Health Officer Dr. Mark Larson. “Other counties in the state are not working as well together.”

Representation of that ability is noted in a recent video, which shows various members of our community from healthcare, public health, emergency response, and local elected officials who all worked together to help keep our county safe. Appearances and positive messages by Rich Elliott, Darren Higashiyama, Brent Hals, John Camarata, Bruce Tabb, Julie Peterson, Steven Harper, Steve Sowers, Dr. Keven Martin, and Brett Wachsmith are included. Additional elected officials were unable to participate, because of regulations in election years.
