City and Partner Organizations Invite Community Members to Join Online Weekly COVID Briefing
Virtual sessions will feature latest updates and include Q&A.
Recognizing the growing concern about the increase in positive COVID-19 cases in Boulder, the City of Boulder, the Boulder County Public Health Department and the University of Colorado-Boulder will begin offering weekly community briefings to provide updates to, and take questions from, the public.
The sessions will be online and community members will need to register in advance to gain access. The first session will be Thursday, Sept. 24, and will last an hour, from 10 to 11 a.m. Subsequent sessions will start at 10:15 and last 45 minutes. These briefings will be held on Thursday mornings until Nov. 20.
City officials will be joined by a representative from Boulder County Public Health and will invite other partners based on the issues of concern that week. Partners from the University of Colorado are scheduled to participate in the first session along with the city and health representatives.
“We know the community is concerned about the spread among CU students in Boulder, and we are offering these briefings to provide Boulder residents and others with access to regular updates,” City Manager Jane Brautigam said. “We are very appreciative of our partners’ willingness to participate in these briefings and keep our community informed through live meetings, amid their other demands for time to fight this pandemic. Our response is truly a collaborative effort.”
The briefings will include current updates from partners and some time for questions and answers. The discussion will be facilitated by a city representative. The sessions will be recorded and made available for later viewing.
Use this sign-up link to gain access to the Sept. 24 briefing. If you sign up once, we will save your information and email you the links for all subsequent briefings. Each briefing will have a new link. Please do not share direct access links on any social media channels for online meeting security reasons. If you know someone who wishes to participate, please ask that individual to sign up using the link in this release. The city is happy to add all interested community members to the list.
