The COVID-19 pandemic created a public health emergency. In response, state and federal authorities took a range of steps to control infections and deaths, including declaring emergencies, instituting crisis standards of care, calling for masking, requiring vaccination or testing, and closing sites where individuals were congregating and at risk. This has prompted reactions from gratitude to anger, as well as legislation and litigation. Now, RSV and influenza are surging, especially in children. This webinar will bring together national experts to discuss the future of public health powers, the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, and how to rebuild trust in public health institutions in communities across the country.
Panelists will discuss these pressing issues and respond to audience questions during this highly interactive webinar.
