Dr. Ann Jarris & Hosting COVID-19 Webinar

COVID-19 has and will continue to reshape the way entire industries function, and commercial fishing is no different. The Discovery Health MD Team has put together a COVID19 Vessels Procedures and Flowchart for Assessing Symptomatic Crew document to help commercial fishing captains and companies develop protocols for dealing with COVID-19 on vessels and with their crew. While it is not intended as a standard of care or as an industry standard, it can be a resource to help captains and crews determine how to best move forward. Join Ann Jarris, MD, MBA, FACEP as she explains how this resource can help crews work through these challenging and rapidly developing issues. Live audience questions will be answered toward the end of the event.
