State Senator Steve Glazer announced he will be hosting his second telephone Town Hall about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on the community. The Town Hall is set for Sunday, March 15 at 4:00 pm.
According to Glazer, the goal of these events is to make experts in the field accessible to his constituents to answer questions they may have about this virus and the steps underway to contain its spread.
Sunday’s call will include Alameda County’s top public health official and medical leaders from Kaiser Permanente and John Muir Health, who will discuss the steps the health care system has taken to date and their plans for dealing with the virus if it continues to spread.
The guests will include:
- Erica Pan, Alameda County Health Officer and an expert on infectious disease emergencies.
- Marty Ardron, Kaiser Permanente‘s Senior Vice President and Area Manager of the Diablo Service Area, overseeing two hospitals, six medical office buildings and three mental health clinics in an area stretching from Antioch to Livermore.
- Russell Rodriguez, Medical Director of John Muir Health’s Emergency Departments.
These experts will explain the steps local health officials and medical providers are taking to contain the virus. They will also answer e-mailed questions from the public.
There is limited capacity for this call. Those who wish to participate will need to RSVP by 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 15. A follow-up email will be sent to you Sunday afternoon with the call-in phone number and passcode.
Because of the volume of callers we are expecting, live questions will not be possible. Please submit any questions you may have for our guests to [email protected]
