The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce will be part of putting on a virtual town hall meeting this week.

The Chamber and the Community Alliance are hosting the meeting, which can be viewed live on the Chamber's Facebook page on Thursday.

Kristi Bailey with the Chamber says the meeting will include several community leaders giving an update on what's going on locally with the COVID-19 crisis.

“We know that things are changing daily here on the business side of things and people have a lot of questions," Bailey says. "We thought the best way to get those questions answered was to get all of these people on the same conference call at once."

The virtual town hall will include Mosaic Life Care CEO Dr. Mark Laney, St. Joseph Mayor Bill McMurray, St. Joseph School District Superintendent Dr. Doug Van Zyl, Buchanan County Presiding Commissioner Lee Sawyer and St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Patt Lilly.

The town hall meeting will be held at noon on Thursday and you can join into watch on the Chamber's Facebook page then or view it later.

If anyone would like to submit a question before the event, those can be sent to Tama Wagner, Director of the Community Alliance, at [email protected].
