Join us, Friday, May 15, 2-3 pm, for the next installment in an ongoing series of conversations, or micro-summits called “CSG East on COVID-19,” or #CSGCOVID19. This session is a panel discussion by experts on the best health and safety practices as communities begin to open and individuals venture into public spaces.

“Going Outside: How Do I Protect Myself?” will be an expert, yet practical session on personal best health and safety practices when venturing into public spaces. As cities and states gradually relax – and, in some cases, completely lift – “stay-at-home” mandates, residents find themselves lost in a mix of competing messages, advice and guidelines on how to navigate spaces outside of their homes. This struggle has become even more challenging, and fraught with peril, for underserved and disproportionately impacted Black and Brown communities. What is the simplest golden standard for being outside? What is the correct way to wear a mask? Should individuals wear gloves at all times?

REGISTER TODAY and join us for a 1-hour panel on how communities can learn scientifically-backed best-practice protection during the COVID-19 pandemic. Panelists will offer expert insights and guidance.

Registrants will receive a Zoom access link upon registration. Audience members will be able to ask questions by chat. Audience members are encouraged to discuss and share the panel on social media at #CSGCOVID19

These discussions offer insights, analysis and solutions on numerous challenges communities and governments face as the COVID-19 crisis ensues. These micro-summits are being produced in partnership with the B|E Note. It is a unique convening of state and local policy makers, experts and thinkers concerned about the massive equity gaps exposed and worsened by the global coronavirus pandemic.

Organized by The Council of State Governments Eastern Regional Conference, Council on Communities of Color and Healthcare Ready.
