In the San Francisco Bay Area we’ve “flattened the curve” of COVID-19 infections, saving thousands of lives. But as we slowly go back to work, school, and other aspects of “normal” life, how do we prevent a second wave of infection? And is there a chance some of us are already immune? Join Exploratorium Senor Scientist Jennifer Frazier in conversation with Dr. George Rutherford, Head of Epidemiology at the University of California, San Francisco. This COVID Conversation will focus on how we prevent infection as we ease social distancing, lessons from the 1918 flu, and the latest on immunity to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Watch the live stream on YouTube and Facebook. And send your questions for this week’s expert by posting them here.
