Congressman Derek Kilmer plans a telephone town hall at 6 p.m. Tuesday to provide an update on the federal government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and to answer questions from constituents.

Residents of the 6th District — which includes the North Olympic Peninsula — can call 877-229-8493 to join the town hall. The PIN is 111435. They also can listen over the internet at www.facebook.com/Derek.Kilmer

Dr. Larry Corey will join the conversation to discuss COVID-19 vaccines and the road ahead, Kilmer’s office said.

Corey is an internationally renowned expert in virology, immunology and vaccine development at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the co-leader of the vaccine testing program for the COVID-19 Prevention Network, the office said.

In addition there will be a discussion on the legislation passed by Congress to support workers and families,

“Even though we can’t meet in person right now, it’s important for me to hear from as many constituents as possible across our region,” Kilmer said.

“I hope folks will be able to join the town hall to learn more about COVID-19 recovery, my ongoing efforts to ensure the federal government steps up to lend a hand to families and local employers, and to get your questions answered.”

Kilmer has held town halls so far in the 116th Congress in Port Angeles, Quilcene, Tacoma, Belfair, Poulsbo, Kingston, Gig Harbor, Montesano, Westport, Forks, over the phone, and on Facebook.
