Lessons Learned from being at the First Wave of the Covid-19 Epidemic in the US – 7/16 @1PM ET

In early March 2020, Seattle was considered to be a “hot spot” for the COVID-19 epidemic in the United States. A month later, Washington was one of the first states to have demonstrated success at “flattening the curve”. This presentation will explore important lessons learned that might be of value to other jurisdictions and what challenges we still face as we transition into the “post peak” phase of the epidemic in the Puget Sound.
