About the Webinar
Dr. Allan Feingold and his team at Baptist Health South Florida have been actively tracking and reporting on COVID-19 data daily for several months now. For this session in this Back to Boca series, we’ll do a deep-dive into the data to explore COVID-19 case trends across the US, specifically in Florida, and more closely in our area. Dr. Feingold will also discuss the impact of mask wearing and social distancing, as well as guidelines around quarantines.
