A panel discussion regarding COVID-19 will be held Monday evening, March 16, beginning at 7pm. Residents will hear from representatives of the health department, Mosaic Life Care, Northwest Health Services, St. Joseph School District, Missouri Western State University and Buchanan County EMS.
A presentation will be made to discuss the current situation, facts surrounding the coronavirus, prevention and treatment, along with other relevant information, followed by a question and answer period. The event will last one hour in duration.
In an effort to help reduce the spread of virus, this panel discussion will be conducted in a closed setting, meaning there will be no audience in attendance. Residents can watch the discussion live on cable channel 19, stream it live on the city’s website at stjoemo.org, or via Facebook live on the city’s page.
