About the Event
All fifty states are now in some phase of reopening after closing to reduce the spread of Corona Virus. Idaho’s Governor’s Little is implementing a 4-phase “Rebound to Prosperity,” and Idahoans are presently in phase 2. As we move from shelter-in-place into a new world of social distancing, there remain many health questions. More than 93,000 Americans have died. We still have 1.5 million active Covid cases. Many people have the disease without symptoms. Join City Club of Boise for a conversation with five healthcare experts to discuss ongoing public health concerns and best practices for responding to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
