About the Event
In the 6 months since Idaho saw its first coronavirus case in mid-March, Idahoans have experienced upheaval in many aspects of our daily lives. From the stay-at-home order to closures of schools and businesses, to gradual reopening and then closures yet again as cases surged – we have been on a roller-coaster ride without a clear track before us. Join our panel of healthcare and policy experts as they share perspectives on the growing body of scientific knowledge about the novel coronavirus, its spread in Idaho thus far, impacts on healthcare capacity, advances in prevention and treatment, and recommendations to help curb the spread of the virus.
