Pearl Jam’s members have a long history of advocating for worthy causes, and this year, COVID-19 prevention is one of them. Recently, guitarist Stone Gossard filmed a PSA in partnership with the Washington State Department of Health to encourage Washingtonians to download the WA Notify app. The app uses Bluetooth to alert users if they have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 so they can quarantine and take action to avoid spreading the virus. To learn more, visit the WA Notify website.
Whether you’re a Washington resident or not, please remember to wear your mask around others, avoid non-essential travel, and keep gatherings small. The sooner we eliminate this virus, the sooner we can go back to a more normal life– a life that includes live music and a rescheduling of Pearl Jam’s postponed 2020 tour.
