Part of the Occ-Covid 2022 Webinar Series
Date: December 16, 2022
Time: 1:00-3:00 PM
A “double bill” on two important topics: Indoor air, public health & COVID-19 + The Science of Mutation: Variant Risk and Impact
The pandemic continues with a compounding of harm and disruption from re-infection, diverse and waning immunity, widely circulating respiratory viruses, plus increasingly transmissible SARS CoV-2 variants. Understanding the risks and the steps to effective transmission reduction are keys to prevention for the season of gatherings and festivities, as well as planning for the new year.
