Webinar on New COVID-19 Frontline Guide

Tuesday, March 31, 2020 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm ET

This webinar will be co-hosted by the Nuclear Threat Initiative, Georgetwon University's Center for Global Health Science and Security,and the Center for Global Development.

Successful suppression of COVID-19 in the United States will require urgent and decisive action by state, local, and community leaders across the country. To support effective decision-making, top global health security leaders have released a COVID-19 Frontline Guide. Developed in response to calls from local governments for more information on how to protect their communities, the online tool features eight indicators of progress for self-assessment and seven key actions that each include checklists of decision points.

The guide provides a framework to help local leaders establish effective strategies to fight the outbreak, both by reducing transmission of the disease and by supporting their communities effectively.

The website and guide will be discussed at an online webinar on Tuesday, March 31 at 12:30 pm ET. Register and we will provide the Zoom information before the event.
