Counties to host live COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall, March 11

COVID-19 Town Hall

Residents and business owners are invited to submit questions to Tri-County Health, in advance of and during live virtual meeting. 

On Wednesday, March 11, 7– 8:30 p.m., Douglas, Adams and Arapahoe Counties will host a joint COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall to discuss the latest developments about the coronavirus and how area residents should prepare for it.

All residents are invited to submit their questions to our COVID-19 survey page ahead of the event. This will help officials from each county, and from Tri-County Health, to learn more about some of the most frequently asked COVID-19 questions in their communities, and to have the opportunity to research the answers before the event. Participants also will have the opportunity to ask questions during the 90-minute town hall.

The participating Tri-County Health Department officials are:

  • John Douglas, executive director;
  • Bernadette Ann Albanese, medical epidemiologist; and
  • Michele Askenazi, MPH, CHES, the department’s director of emergency preparedness, response, and communicable disease surveillance.

These officials will provide updates on the status of the virus in the three-county area, as well as information about proactive measures being taken to maximize community safety and other fundamental information, including what is the transmission risk of COVID-19, what are the best actions individuals and businesses can take right now, and more. Officials from Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas counties will also be on hand to answer questions about their specific jurisdictions.
