Path Forward: Flu Shots, Masks, and COVID-19 Testing

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

WHAT IS PATH FORWARD

America is restarting the economy after a lengthy shutdown. The effort to bring millions of people back to work brings lots of big, complicated questions. Path Forward, a series produced by the U.S. Chamber Foundation, is designed to help business and community leaders find the answers they need to execute a responsible reopening strategy and plan for a post-pandemic world.

How do we protect employees and customers from the coronavirus? What are some of the barriers to a successful reopening of the economy? Where can my staff get COVID-19 tests? Masks? Gloves? Who’s going to pay for all this? Each episode features conversations between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Suzanne Clark and experts with practical recommendations for businesses of all sizes. Path Forward events take place at 3 p.m. ET every other Thursday.

If you can’t attend, you’ll find a recording of each episode on the Foundation’s website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.

WHAT TOPICS WERE DISCUSSED?
