NIEHS WTP Webinar| Occupational COVID Prevention and Control in Schools

Date: Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021 - Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021
Time: 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Event Type: Webinars

Workers providing services in pre K-12 schools, technical schools, colleges, and universities are faced with environments that put them in proximity with other workers, students, visitors, and parents. These circumstances, matched with a lack of a clear national strategy and standards for protection, put workers at risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

This webinar will provide a scientific basis for recommendations and guidance for preventing exposure to infectious agents, showcase model programs, and address ongoing challenges with proper ventilation, distancing, masking, and vaccine uptake. The panel will include NIEHS WTP grantees and national leaders that represent teachers’ unions, university-based program leads, and occupational health professionals that have built successful programs while being up against remarkable challenges.
