Covid Towards Endemic
For the last two years, “Covid-19” and “pandemic” have been synonymous. But now, in the newest phase of the virus, “Covid-19” is moving from a pandemic to an endemic disease. But what does that actually mean for our workdays? What risks should we plan for as we ease back to the office? And what should we be ready for in our return to a new normal?
In SVLG’s Covid Towards Endemic on Friday, March 18th, from 11:00am – 12:00pm, top health experts will help you figure that out. California State Epidemiologist, Dr. Erica S. Pan MD, and Stanford Health Care Epidemiologist, Dr. Jorge L. Salinas MD, will dive into recent developments, address recent masking changes and answer questions from our companies and communities.
This event is part of our new roundtable series, The Local Level. Join these leading epidemiologists as they offer our members their important insights and lay out the latest in the evolution of coronavirus.
If you wish to sponsor this roundtable, please reach out to SVLG’s VP of Events, Shannon De Atley-Johnon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
