Why Should You Attend:
Shutdowns to impede the spread of COVID-19 have already cost the U.S. economy trillions of dollars, and your business is probably among those that have suffered as a result. The 1918 flu pandemic underscores the enormous risks of trying to go back to "business as usual" while the disease still exists, and there is also no guarantee that COVID-19 will not mutate into a new disease against which any vaccines now in development will not work.
The good news is however that non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) can be easily implemented in attendees' workplaces or commercial establishments. Engineering controls such as partitions between workstations (and restaurant tables) impede contagion without people even having to think about them. Changes in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) also can reduce contagion.
Administrative controls such as staggered shifts and one-way aisles rely on vigilance and compliance, but they reduce the number of people present at any given time to reduce opportunities for contagion. These NPIs should also, with the aid of the annual flu vaccine, make the 2019-2020 flu season the last flu season in the United States.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) such as respirators and face masks also reduce a disease's ability to spread, and can serve as an almost impenetrable line of defense should COVID-19 or anything like it ever come back. Improvised masks are partially effective, surgical masks are very effective, and N95 and similar respirators (which should be readily available as production ramps up) are extremely effective.
Telecommuting and distance education are meanwhile the ultimate forms of social distancing; while computer viruses can propagate across Internet connections, COVID-19 cannot. More to the point is that remote working and remote education eliminate the need for brick-and-mortar structures along with their associated capital and maintenance costs along with the time and monetary costs of commuting. These costs can be enormous in large cities, and are shared by all stakeholders in the form of higher prices, lower wages, and lower profits. Attendees will learn why continuation of remote activities even when the menace of COVID-19 has ended can improve bottom line financial performance and give better service to everybody involved.
