(Feb. 18, 2022) — On February 28 from 5:30 pm–6:30 pm, Healthy Davis Together, UC Davis and Yolo County Public Health will host a virtual town hall to answer community questions about COVID-19. The event — titled “Living With COVID-19: What’s Next?” — will provide an opportunity to hear from local public health experts.

The conversation will be moderated by UC Davis Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Mary Croughan and feature Yolo County Public Health Officer Dr. Aimee Sisson, UC Davis Campus Medical Director Dr. Cindy Schorzman and Healthy Davis Together Medical Director Dr. Sheri Belafsky. The panelists will speak to the evolving reality of the pandemic and its effect on the UC Davis campus, the City of Davis and the entirety of Yolo County.
Topics will range from loosening COVID-19 restrictions to the differences between PCR and antigen tests and when to use them to the likelihood of future variants and surges in case numbers.
