COVID-19: Mid-Summer Update
Time: 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM
Amidst a nationwide resurgence of COVID-19, Colorado scientists, health officials, and policymakers continue to closely monitor the disease’s progression within the state. Mountain towns have seen an influx of summer visitors, bringing some economic relief, but also a rise in caseloads. Counties are continuing to navigate physical distancing guidelines for businesses while warily looking ahead to opening schools in the fall. Face mask usage - recently mandated statewide - remains a political flashpoint. Five months into the coronavirus epidemic, what have we learned and where does Colorado go from here?
Join us Monday, July 27 at 8:30 a.m. as we assess the “state of the state” with Jonathan Samet, MD, MS, Professor of Epidemiology and Environmental and Occupational Health and Dean of the Colorado School of Public Health. Dr. Samet will provide an overview of the most recent modeling from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and be joined by John M. Douglas, Jr., MD, Executive Director of the Tri-County Health Department, and Karen Koenemann, Public Health Director for Pitkin County, for a discussion on how different areas of Colorado face different challenges in their respective public health responses.
This free public webinar is a collaboration of the Colorado School of Public Health, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and the Institute for Science & Policy. The session will also be streamed on Facebook Live.
