COVID-19 has been saturating the news since early February, and more so since each state has been quarantined. This program will be different! In this non-partisan, no political approach to this disease, you will learn when & how it started by looking at the chain of infection and how it progresses. Chris will walk you thru the agencies that are involved in developing policies, programs of prevention and guidelines. She will also discuss the medications that maybe useful in fighting this virus, and how each drug must go thru protocols, research and evaluation before they can be approved. Also covered will be testing, issues with testing, antibody testing verses testing for virus, some recent statistics, key safety protocols, and what to do to protect yourself!
1.0 CE Credit will be awarded to Illinois nurses, social workers, professional counselors and nursing home administrators.
*There is no fee for this program as it is being supported by the United Way of Lake County.
