WEST CHESTER — The Chester County COVID-19 Business Task Force has announced that it will hold the first in a series of webinars for county businesses and organizations looking to reopen, revise or even expand operations due to the impact of the coronavirus.
This first webinar is now scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26. It will focus on preparing businesses and organization of all sizes and types to determine their risk of transmission of COVID-19.
Led by Lucia Mullen, an public health analyst at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and a research associate at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the webinar will introduce participants to a toolkit that enables them to identify their business’ area of risk, with suggested modifications to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
“With this toolkit, employers can work through a four-stage process to not only calculate and understand their risk, but also receive examples of mitigation measures to increase the safety of their employees and customers,” said Mullen in a press release about the webinar.
The webinar is free and will be hosted by county Commissioners Marian Moskowitz, Josh Maxwell and Michelle Kichline. It is supported by the county’s nine Chambers of Commerce, and other economic, education and government leaders — all members of the Business Task Force.
In addition to developing and scheduling a series of webinars, the Chester County COVID-19 Business Task Force, formed earlier this month, is preparing a web-based resource with practical and downloadable information specifically designed for county businesses and organizations, and for local residents.
Under the banner of “Restore Chester County” the website will help Chester County businesses, organizations and residents confidently and easily navigate their way through the re-opening process, providing both overall and industry-specific guidance relating to COVID-19.
