What Education Reporters Need to Know About the Science of COVID-19

As scientific understanding of the novel coronavirus continues to evolve, states, school systems, and higher education institutions must weigh what is known — and unknown  — about the risks to guide decision-making. What’s the appropriate threshold to reopen or close schools? What safety precautions are most important on campuses? The list of questions goes on. 

Now, news of a forthcoming vaccine has added another layer to the unfolding situation. In this webinar, attendees get a basic science explainer from an epidemiologist. They also learn about guidance and best practices for safely operating schools from an expert at Johns Hopkins University. 

Speakers:

  • Sara B. Johnson, associate professor of pediatrics, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health
  • Falgunee Parekh, founder and principal scientist, EpiPointe
  • Rachel Cohen, freelance reporter (moderator)
