POSTPONED – Tell Us Something – “Lost and Found” – 3/25 – Missoula – Rescheduled for June 9

March 25 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Tell Us Something values the health and wellbeing of all involved with our programs – including storytellers, volunteers, attendees and event venue staff. As coronavirus moves through the US and has come to Missoula, we are watching unprecedented measures being taken in a rapidly changing situation and working to respond thoughtfully and safely.

Tell Us Something is committed to preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus and is following local, state and federal guidelines for event planning and execution issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in addition to state and local agencies. We are taking this seriously.

To that end, we have postponed the scheduled March 25 live event at The Wilma. 

The event has been rescheduled for June 9th. If you have already purchased tickets for this event, please keep them in a safe place. They will be honored at the rescheduled event.

Refunds are also available for The Wilma event by emailing [email protected]. If tickets were purchased in person from the Top Hat or Rockin’ Rudy’s, refunds will be available at the Top Hat box office starting Monday, March 16th. Additional questions regarding ticketing can be directed to [email protected].

We are also indefinitely postponing the April 2 Tell Us Something event scheduled for The Orphan Girl Theatre in Butte, MT until the situation with COVID-19 becomes more stabilized and information is more clear.

OK, that’s the news. How about some ways to learn more and some information about how you can help slow the spread of the virus?

As Governor Bullock said when he declared a state of emergency for Montana, “Now is the time to plan, not to panic. Our state has been preparing for coronavirus to come to Montana and we will be prepared to respond all along the way. Just like we do when any challenging situation hits our communities, we stick together to make sure that we mitigate the impact, that we have an appropriate response, and that we slow the spread.”

A website has been set up to keep Montanans apprised of Task Force actions at COVID19.mt.gov. You can also visit the DPHHS website at http://www.dphhs.mt.gov for the most up to date and timely health information related to the coronavirus.

If you have any questions or concerns, the Governor’s Coronavirus Task Force has launched an informational phone line at 1-888-333-0461 and Montanans can also email questions to [email protected]. State public health officials will be responding to inquiries from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.

If you have any symptoms, pick up the phone and call your doctor or local public health provider for consultation, instead of driving to the doctor’s office or emergency room.

Here are other simple steps you can take:

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or into your sleeve
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Stay home if you have cold or flu-like symptoms and avoid close contact with people who are sick

This can be a confusing and upsetting time for all of us. Emergency events often create a sense of frustration around the limited information that is available making it difficult to make plans or decisions, this is especially difficult when it impacts our families.

Locally, in Missoula, a website has been established as well: missoula.co/cvirus

In Missoula, there are some volunteers who are coordinating food and supply drop-offs to people’s front doors. They are following recommendations from public health officials. Please use this form if you need deliveries: Missoula COVID-19 “Need Support” Form

We will continue to monitor the public health situation in Montana and determine whether we need to extend cancellations beyond April 1.

I extend to you hope for good physical and mental health during this stressful time, and we look forward to seeing you again at our events and gatherings in 2020 after the virus subsides.

Please take care of yourselves, your family and your communities. And keep sharing stories.

Thank you for your support,

Marc Moss
