I am writing to remind you that you are invited to participate in my fifth Telephone Town Hall on the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and its effect on our community.
This event will be this morning, Thursday, March 19 at 10 a.m.
I am holding these town halls to make experts available to answer your questions about this dangerous virus, how our public and private institutions are handling it, and what we can do as individuals to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.
My guest for this Town Hall will be my Senate colleague, Dr. Richard Pan, who is a practicing pediatrician in Sacramento and chairman of the Senate Health Committee.
Dr. Pan and I will discuss the nature of the Coronavirus, its spread, and what public health experts are saying about the implications of the epidemic’s current rate of growth. I will also be asking him about what each of us can do in our own lives to minimize our risk of infection.
There is limited capacity for this call. Those who wish to participate will need to RSVP by 8 a.m. today, March 19. A follow-up email will be sent to you with the call-in phone number and passcode.
Because of the number of participants, we will only be taking written questions for this conversation. Please submit any questions you may before or during the call to [email protected].
You may submit questions whether or not you intend to participate. A recording of the Town Hall will be available at my website at sd07.senate.ca.gov Recordings of the first four Coronavirus Town Halls are already on the site.
I know that these developments have created great stress on everyone. Thank you for taking the time to be as informed as possible so we can keep each other safe.
