Watch a free live stream: COVID-19: A Discussion with Public Health Experts (Replay from Monday, Mar. 30, 2020)
Nevada is just one of the many states that has taken steps to minimize the risk and spread of COVID-19 as cases increase across the state and the country. Schools have moved to remote instruction, non-essential businesses are temporarily closed, and most residents are now at home.
With public health at the forefront in Nevada and worldwide, accurate, scientifically-based information is needed now more than ever.
Experts from the UNLV School of Public Health and Southern Nevada Health District will share what you need to know about COVID-19, based on the science of this and other infectious diseases. They will share their expertise on how to minimize your risks, how to slow transmission, and where we go from here.
The discussion will feature:
- Brian Labus, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the UNLV School of Public Health
- Francisco S. Sy, Professor and Chair of the Dept. of Environmental and Occupational Health at the UNLV School of Public Health
- Vit Kraushaar, Medical Investigator at the Southern Nevada Health District Office of Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance
