Next week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top expert on COVID-19, will be paying a visit to Santa Clara County.
He’ll be meeting with local officials to discuss the ongoing pandemic and logistics for lowering case numbers while establishing safe reopening plans.
The event, scheduled for Friday, October 30, by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, an advocacy nonprofit that represents more than 340 local employers on issues that affect the economic health and livability in the area.
“We could not be more excited to host someone of (Fauci’s) caliber,” said SVLG CEO Ahmad Thomas. “There’s no bigger issue in our region, our economy, our businesses, our state, our nation than this pandemic, and managing through this.”
Following their discussion, Fauci and Thomas will be joined by local experts for a discussion of the local, regional and state-level effects of COVID-19.
The virtual event will be available in limited viewing to the public Oct. 30, with the full forum available virtually on the SVLG website and YouTube Nov. 2.
