Public Health Discussion

March 30, 2020—Fraternal Think Tank Q&A about impact of COVID-19 with Dr. Jodie Guest, Professor and Vice Chair, Epidemiology, Emory University, and Judson Horras, NIC President and CEO

Key Points:

  • Any gathering over 10 people will be a risk this fall, including philanthropy, meetings, parties. No big gatherings in June. July is questionable.
  • Must have a way to isolate and treat students who get sick when they return to campus. Encourage students to report if they are feeling unwell and not be scared of the stigma.
  • How can we establish a culture of hand washing in our chapters? Students will need access to supplies, processes for facility cleaning, commitment to offering hand sanitizer stations.
