Join Bridge Lunch Break to discuss moving from pandemic to endemic

lunch break

Bridge Michigan invites readers to join us from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. April 27 for a virtual discussion about COVID-19 in our monthly Bridge Lunch Break series.

Caseloads are inching up again but still remain far below those of a few months ago, prompting many to believe the pandemic is shifting to an endemic that won’t go away.

Bridge reporters Robin Erb and Mike Wilkinson will lead a discussion on Zoom that touches on topics including risk mitigation, whether mask usage is still necessary and what precautions we should all take.
