WEST CHESTER, PA –The Chester County COVID-19 Business Task Force will host the fourth in a series of free webinars on Thursday June 25th, 2020 at 11 a.m. This webinar will feature Dr. David Rubin of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and professor of pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Rubin is the director of the PolicyLab at CHOP, which has developed a model for specific counties that looks at weather, social distancing data, and population density of each county to predict future cases.
The majority of Dr. Rubin’s talk will center on the model and will include updated data from as recently as the day before the webinar. He will also cover more general issues like the definition of a virus and how COVID-19 is transmitted.
For more information about the PolicyLab and their project, visit their website. Recent data and projections about COVID-19 transmission gathered from the model can be found at https://policylab.chop.edu/covid-lab-mapping-covid-19-your-community.
The webinar is free and will be hosted by Chester County Commissioners Marian Moskowitz, Josh Maxwell and Michelle Kichline. It is backed by the County’s nine chambers of commerce, and other economic, education and government leaders—all members of the COVID-19 Business Task Force and its Restore Chester County initiative.
Slides and resources from previous webinars can be found at the recently launched Restore Chester County website. Through the site, businesses, organizations, and residents can confidently navigate through these materials and other reopening guidelines with both overall and industry-specific guidance relating to COVID-19.
The Chester County COVID-19 Business Task Force is dedicated to developing the best practices for Chester County businesses to reopen and to restoring the county’s quality of place amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
