Ep. 19 COVID-19 Roundtable Update - 8/18


In the midst of one of our hottest summers ever, Arizona’s new confirmed COVID-19 case rate is starting to cool off. But as we should all know by now, actions and decisions today don’t become measurable numbers for weeks. It’s important to look back at what we’re learning, look ahead using that knowledge, and think carefully about the challenges we face together. You’re going to hear a lot of that processing of data, knowledge, and new opportunities in this week’s compelling COVID-19 roundtable conversation – one that we will top off with some emergent hope about testing. Here's your weekly reminder: Don’t stop being smart when it comes to COVID-19. Stay-at-home as much as you possibly can; wash up; mask up; maintain social distancing, and keep a heads up for your fellow Arizonans. If we want continued lower numbers 2-4 weeks from now, our actions today make that difference. It’s time to talk about the data, policymaking, the importance of getting your flu shot, the great school reopening dilemma, coming bar and nightclub reopening decisions, vaccines, and new hope for faster, cheaper testing. In other words, it’s time to talk about what life with COVID-19 looks like as of August 18, 2020.
