Reports
COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall Series

Bringing America back to work and restarting the economy will take planning and vision. Any movement in the direction toward reentering and repopulating buildings, businesses, and transportation systems must follow the health and safety guidelines set forth by science and data, the federal government, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and World Health Organization. To meet this challenge, the Consultative Council sponsored a series of COVID-19 virtual town halls.
