A Busy Week with Dr. Nick, including a Webinar with CAI, this Week’s COVID-19 Discussion and More

It’s been a busy week.

Last Friday Dr. Nick and I participated in a webinar for CAI and the North Carolina Chamber of Commerce giving them an update on COVID-19 and discussing issues to consider when going back to work.  We had an excellent discussion and Q&A session.

Then we put up the first module for our Employer education series to create a plan to reopen called Safely Back to Work. You can take the first module free, which takes you through the First Step of creating a plan, introduces you to the concept of a COVID Coordinator and gives you insights into the remaining program. Please take a look and let us know your thoughts.

Then we did  this week’s discussion on COVID-19, in which Dr. Nick talks about the gender differences seen with the disease and Remdesivir a drug that may show some promise in treatment, while  I cover some of the State’s plans to reopen,  including Florida and introduce a few things to think about when you are planning to bring your employees back to work.

Here’s this week’s discussion:

 

And here’s the webinar we did for CAI and the NC Chamber of Commerce:

 

Oh and one more thing, Dr. Nick set up a web page for all things COVID-19 here

Stay Safe.

My Discussion this Week on COVID-19 with Dr. Nick van Terheyden and my Social Distancing Boat Trip.

This week Dr. Nick and I discussed:

  • The recent World Health Organization (WHO) announcement regarding the development of immunity and how some news outlets reported on it
  •  My recent experience boating in Jacksonville and how the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as well as the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office are handling Physical Distancing. Great job by officers for both organizations by the the way.
  • We provide more information on the Back to Work issues that employers will face and
  • Discuss some of the Governor of Georgia’s rules going into place as they seek to re-open during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

 

As for the boat trip discussed in this episode. I was the first one at the boat ramp where  a new Social Distancing Sign had been put up by the City. Nicely done Jacksonville! (My apologies for the poor photo as it was hastily taken in my rush to be sure I was on the boat before anyone else showed up).

It was a beautiful day so I headed down river about 23 miles to Green Cove Springs and saw an interesting boat that is obviously not being used now.

Look for the next episode with Dr. Nick and me next week.
