City & State is proud to present “First Read Coronavirus Update” a four-part webinar series in partnership with the Office of the Counsel to the Mayor. Each month we will co-host a one-hour webinar featuring Mayor de Blasio’s closest legal and policy advisors, which will be moderated by City & State Editorial staff.
We welcome the opportunity to partner with each industry to expand our discussion with the Mayor’s team and form a larger roundtable discussion each week. Join us for this series and ask your questions live.
Dr. Jay Varma, Senior Advisor to the Mayor on COVID-19, Kapil Longani, Counsel to the Mayor, Bess Chiu Chief of Staff to the Counsel, Mark Ustin, New York State Regulatory & Government Relations Partner, Farrell Fritz, and Dr. Ramon Tallaj, Board Chairman & Founder, Somos Community Care, will speak about New York City’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular the City’s historic contact tracing, quarantine, and vaccine distribution efforts. Discussion topics will include the legal issues related to these topics and a discussion of the vaccine rollout plan.
