Public Health Considerations in an Era of Expanding Vaccine Rates


The bad news is that we are now into year two of the pandemic, but the good news is that a vaccine is here! As vaccination levels rise and the country continues to reopen, it’s time for another update on numerous important public health and safety considerations that should be integrated into any in-person court operations. This webinar will include presentations from infectious disease specialists and epidemiologists highlighting recommendations for safely reopening. Approaches to masking and social distancing, both for court staff and the public, will be a focus of the discussion. Court leaders will also discuss how they have addressed the numerous challenges presented in this transitional time. Register now for this virtual event.
