Weighing the Decision to Safely ‘Reopen’ Northern Virginia

May 28 @ 1:00pm - 2:00pm

In the near future state and local agencies, school systems, and universities in Northern Virginia will need to make decisions about how and when to resume “normal operations.” What factors should decision-makers take into consideration when finalizing plans to safely send people back to work, school, and play?  Is this a choice between public safety and economic recovery or is there another framework we should consider? What metrics, data, and other factors should be taken into consideration? And using these metrics, where are we now, in terms of readiness to “reboot the economy”?
